GeneralNuGet Hell ... Pin

Hi All,

I'm sick of NuGet micro-managing my references and shafting me in the process. Why are people releasing stable NuGet packages that reference pre-release versions of things?

I've used McvMailer in my current project which has a reference to T4Scaffolding stuff that in turn reference EF6 PRERELEASE ... whereas all our production code references EF5 ...

I know have a broken solution that compiles but wont run ...

A few other devs I've spoken to are equally fed up with NuGet and the mess it can make in the background. I really don't see the benefits, it just wastes time imho and If I want to carry on using MvcMailer it appears that I have to upgrade everything to a pre-release version of EF ...

Am I Massively missing something here or is NuGet just a total pain in the ass?
