One of these features is that packages with a reserved prefix include a visual indicator for NuGet package consumers to identify that the packages they are consuming originate from package owners that have reserved the prefix.

Towards the end of 2016, the Cake Team had an internal discussion about the newly created Cake Contrib Organisation. The topic of this conversation was, how could we distinguish between packages (mainly NuGet ones) that were part of the Core Cake system (for example, Cake, Cake.Core, Cake.NuGet, etc), and packages which have been created by our amazing Cake Community, in the form of addins, and modules.
