I am trying to create a a feature staple. To do this I need to create a feature and then edit the feature.xml to be like:

<Elements xmlns="">
        TemplateName="STS#0" />
        TemplateName="STS#1" />

I have created a feature in Visaul Studio 2010. I however can't seem to find the feature.xml to edit. Where would I find this file in visual studio?

Add these lines (inside the Elements tag) to an 'Empty Element' project item, then add that Project Item to a Feature (Scoped to Web Application, for example) in the solution.
