SymbolSource is a rather fundamental service in the .NET opensource ecosystem, supporting debug symbol and source indexing and hosting for any NuGet packages (step directly into sources) and integrated directly into the NuGet tooling.
Unfortunately SymbolSource is in a rather bad state. In fact I don’t remember a single time over the last couple years where I did not run into timeouts or issues with their backend SQL server when trying to publish my symbol packages. Also the web frontent typically has loading times in the range of minutes.
Would it be an option for the .NET foundation to step in and support the SymbolSource team in making this a great and reliable service again, and with this support the whole .Net opensource ecosystem?
I’m not affiliated with SymbolSource in any way, but use the service in various .Net opensource projects.
