@mwallner is that work that you are doing on ChocolateyGUI or another application?

@gep13 it's called 'ChocoUpgradeNotifier' -> a seperate application that can trigger ChocolateyGUI or the commandline (if ChocolateyGUI is not installed)
@gep13 why? - would you be interested in integrating it into ChocolateyGUI?

@mwallner glad I asked. Exactly like that. Why could I not find it when I searched, is it a private repo perhaps?

@Lythix kind of - I'm afraid you can't get it until I strip company specific data from it :smile: - as I said it'll probably be online next month, but I'll push it as soon as possible!

My idea was to use something like oneget to query all of the install vectors for collecting your normal install list, and either sharing it with your peers, as well as using this list to pave a new machine. Chocolatey is just the start. Hence my interest to use something like Oneget (package manager manager)
is it a product or is it designed to be open source eventually?

@mwallner my idea was born at a startup weekend, but was never worked on. Kind of "what's in my toolbox". Inspired by Scott Hanselman's Ulitmate tool list he updates every couple of years.
with a pro app that can both collect data on existing machine, to seed your share list, as well as be used when paving your new machine. Ie install it, and it tells you what you usually install.
but your notifier sounds like its a good start.

thats the one.
his list is a manually curated list. My idea what to bring that idea to all devs/designers
so everyone can share their favourite tool list.
great way to discover new tools etc
and pave a new machine :)
