    I see that Asset Store is being supported in Package Manager as well for example My Asset dropdown is able to import Asset Store items. However, package in "UPM shape" need some folders like Documentation~ or Samples~, or maybe user defined hidden folders (with ~ suffix or . prefix) to be on the store and downloaded back to users.

    But when I use the new v5.0.0 upload tool on a properly UPM-shaped folder, I tried getting my own plugin after it passed the submission, but the uploaded content didn't contain those folders, making it impossible to make a submission that works equally on Asset Store and Package Manager. How can I publish an proper UPM package to Asset Store?

    The way I see now is to zip them, so producing Documentation~.zip and Samples~.zip that would be uploaded together, then tell user to unzip it restoring its "not imported" status.

    Hello,
    Unfortunately, although it is on our roadmap to actually have packages published to the asset store, it is not yet available.
