Management tools powershell modules in PS Gallery

Publish all In-Box PowerShell modules to the gallery so scripted functions that do not actually required the full features can be used. Such as Invoke-GpUpdate.

    As it turns out, this is really difficult and the likelihood of delivering something that would work is not high.

    The biggest issue with providing the in-box modules via the Gallery is that the PowerShell modules you are interested in require other code elements that ship as part of the Windows versions the PowerShell code ships in. If you don’t have a matching set, the PowerShell cmdlets can’t work.

    Moving forward, many teams are considering using the PowerShell Gallery as their primary path to providing PowerShell modules. That will require changes to how they develop the PS code, and make this easier.

    However, repackaging existing in-box modules & delivering them via the PS Gallery will not be successful.
