More intuitive Variables sub-section
Variables are listed here:
But they are not shown anywhere in the UI.
For each project, can we have all these variables listed (in the variables sub-section) with their default values (and possible values) in a similar way that Team City shows all possible configuration options.
This way we can easily see what settings are available, what their values are, and what we might change them to.
The Red Gate TeamCity plugin generates a Deploy.ps1 script which expects a number of variables. This script is included in the NuGet package that Deployment Manager can deploy.
It would be convenient if those variables could be added automatically to the variable list of Deployment Manager projects that are linked to the NuGet package in quesiton.

We are planning to improve the clarity and usability of variables in DM soon. I'll make sure we take this idea into account.

I'd be happy to help out.

Thanks for the suggestion Anthony,
Actually this exact idea is on our backlog already. :)
Would you be happy if we get in touch with some mockups on how we would expect this UI to work?
