one example of what chocobot can do is group aliasing. I added a group alias called chocoteam, and I added all the members of the team to it. That way, if there is an annoucement, like the release of ChocolateyGUI 0.12.0, which you want everyone on the team to know about, you can mention this group alias, and chocobot will translate that into a mention for each team member. I personally am glad that this exists, and find it a useful tool to alert everyone about something.
@Redsandro if you want me to remove you from this group alias, please let me know, and I will take you off
@Redsandro joining a room is as simple as clicking on a notification, or email link. As long as you have a GitHub account, you will automatically be authenticated into the room, there is no real joining process, you simply get in
@Redsandro with regard to your suggestion for the GUI and allowing you to edit metadata for a package. This is something that we have discussed, and we may well be creating new tool, specifically for the creation and maintenance of Chocolatey Packages, where you would be able to edit the metadata, but this would never be the metadata that exists on teh server, but rather simply the nuspec file of the package. Any changes to the metadata would still need to go through the moderation process that currently exists
@gep13 thanks for the clarification :)
@gep13 Yeah the highlight/@mention was more general advice in case it was a 'feature' that a bot would always mention the chan. I could have known better if I saw what was going on here. :) Not really used to coming here and staying uptodate. You can keep me in the group. :)
I have no power here.

ah, hold on, if you are new to Gitter, or at least reasonably new, we need to kick chocobot so that he/she can see you, two secs...
