feature, you acknowledge and agree that you may be accessing and using the
third-party packages as distributed by such third parties and under the separate
license terms applicable to each package, including any terms applicable to
software dependencies that may be included in the package. You acknowledge and
agree that it is your responsibility to locate, understand and comply with all
applicable license terms for each package and its dependencies, for example, by
following the package source (feed) URL or by reviewing the packages for
embedded notices or license terms. The package manager feature may have
been pre-set to a feed that is hosted by a third party service provider,
located at go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=206669. The packages listed on this feed may include packages submitted
by third parties. Microsoft makes no representations, warranties or
guarantees as to the feed URL, any feeds from such URL, the information
contained therein, or any packages referenced in or accessed by you through
such feeds. Microsoft grants you no license rights rights for third-party software
that is obtained using this feature or from the feed. You may change the feed
URL that the package manager feature initially points to at any time at your
