@SUBnet192 In short, they allow you to browse and install PowerShell modules from web based repositories, such as Chocolatey or even an internal server within an organization. It's all based on PowerShell OneGet, which is available in the WMF 5 preview. This is a pretty good article explaining OneGet

@vScripter i like the module idea, it was created before modules existed so thats a great thought now, easier to install in the future, i wonder how we could still make it easy to contribute to and have plugins in a module format.
@Sneddo good idea about adding @vScripter as a contributor, would you be ok with that @vScripter? That way we can always make sure we don't accept our own contributions, there is always an additional checker.
Hey I am liking this chat interface, even looks cool on the iPhone

@alanrenouf Absolutely good with me! The notion of maintaining ease of contribution is something I have also been thinking about. That said, I really think if we can get things into modules, make sure functions have proper comment based help, add good documentation in an about_help file and have good overall documentation in the repo on how to contribute, I think it might actually be easier for people to get up to speed. We would basically be implementing PowerShell standard best practices so there would be greater continuity for people that are familiar with PowerShell but not so familiar with vCheck; the opposite of that would be people that are learning PowerShell, because they want/are using vCheck, it will help them transition leverage PowerShell for their daily workflow.

Cleaned house and organized all open issues. Waffle board is starting to look good and makes some sense of what's outstanding. Any issues that should be reviewed as a potential feature have been tagged as enhancement and added to the 7.0 milestone.
