Now that there is an official .NET core library available, are you able to publish it to

If not, is the community allowed to?

It's not that simple. The .NET assembly requires several C style DLLs to be installed correctly in order to function.

Valid point, but I see two seperate issues here - one is deployment that you raised, the other is development.

That is, you need to reference Sap.Data.SQLAnywhere.Core.v2.1 to be able to use it in your code (e.g. SAConnection) and it is far easier to simply dotnet add package SqlAnywhere than having to find it on disk to then add a project reference - plus it fits in with the standard model of adding third-party libraries (and updating them). E.g. To use/update Postgresql you just dotnet add package Npgsql

It would be great to be able to solve both problems with Nuget, but I haven't had the time to play with that yet (plus not sure what the requirements are with the dotnet core library yet).
