    I read this great tutorial on how you could use the manifest.json file to point to a specific folder on your computer and use it as a package.
    https://gist.github.com/LotteMakesStuff/6e02e0ea303030517a071a1c81eb016e

    It's great functionality, but what would be even better is the ability to point to a git repository and specify a commit hash. Are there any plans for this coming in the 2018 lifecycle?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi guys,

    The git support is in the works internally along with some general UX tweaks to the current package manager UI. It will come out as a 'preview' package update to the Package Manager UI. Although, can't say for certain at this point in time which 2018.x will have it marked as "verified". Once I have more details on timing, I'll be sure to let this thread know (we definitely want more hands-on testing of this functionality)

    Thanks
    Daniel

    I would also like to see Hg support but due to the way packages are (they are git repos) I don't think they will do it.
