Would it be possible to implement a info section for OS compatibility/portability for packages on the NuGet gallery website.

This information would be provided by community feedback or the original package developer upon submission. There is some way of scanning libraries for calls to platform specific APIs also.

For example one library may reference win32 API specific stuff which doesn't work on Linux even though the library maybe targeting a cross-platform framework or so.

Currently the consumers have to trial and error test or we rely on documentation from the developer on their Github.

Just an idea. I will try find more examples of this.
