How do I create a shared Add-In?

Hello together,


In ArcGIS Pro 1.3 Backstage at the Add-In Manager Property Page I can see that there is a section called "Shared Add-Ins". What  does this mean? Can I create some kind of a "Base"-Add-In which is available to all (my) other Add-Ins?


My current issue is: Instead of one big, fat Add-In which contains all possible extensions and hooks I have several smaller Add-Ins which extend the ArcGIS Pro Application with always a single (optional) aspect. E.g.: One Add-In that backfits some specific identify functionality, and one Add-In that allows to do some session management around versions. Both Add-Ins share some common business libraries from our company. But because they are in different Add-Ins I get two copies of those company libs in the Esri ArcGIS Pro Add-In assembly caches.


Is a "Shared Add-In" something which can solve that Issue?


Thanks in advance!
