Chocolatey currently doesn't have any OS specific function to exclude or include packages for a specific OS. Everything is lumped together (ex: Dropbox) this will include packages for certain KB that are installed via chocolatey but are only needed for the test environment or some servers
Chocolatey will detect a users proxy but won't detect server speed. The speed of a download for a package is limited to the third party even if downloaded from the chocolatey cached server.

@RedBaron2 Okay. I'm not understanding the context for this and why the choco issues are being brought up here?
RB
@RedBaron2
If your network has issues chocolatey will continue to try and download the package until finished our the user closes the shell they are using.
@pauby you mentioned about python 3 and it now but being windows 7 support.
Oops not

@pauby I'll let you get back to moderating. Have a good day.

Okay, I didn't get the context as that was back at the start of October.
I'd need to dig into that again, but I was left with the impression that more could be done to enhance the user experience.

hey, what is the gitter channel to talk about community packages?
I have a package failing here (https://chocolatey.org/packages/ags/3.5.0.25) due to vcredist140 package.

I'm following this carefully, but LibreOffice may be only offered as a rolling release branch now: now more still, no more fresh.
LTS will remain the exclusive of partners of the ecosystem like Collabora Office.

@pauby I have well received your emails wrt. openvpn. Sorry I wasn't able to respect the deadline I proposed in the comment section. Had a domestic incident and lost usage of my right hand. Was busy with medical operation stuff :/ Will check at it since I now have "free" time. Typing at one hand is weird but I'm still managing to code ^^

@pauby
@wget I'm just getting to this now. I'm sorry to hear about what happened. I hope things improve soon!

can we have access to a debug rdp for the core team packages? Libreoffice is not updating while locally on my side it is

@wget just to confirm, are you testing with the Chocolatey Test Environment locally?
William Gathoye
@wget

@mark-sellars
Hey William I got your reply on the Libre package
thanks so much for the responses by the way!
William Gathoye
@wget
@mark-sellars no issue, tryin my best to address any question, especially with that package which has quite a lot of traction :p
Mark Sellars
@mark-sellars
@wget One thing I can do for you if you want is we can use something like Jitsi meet and you can try it out on my environment.
William Gathoye
@wget
oh sure we can, but jitsi meet is just audio and sharing a screen and doesn't (afaik) offer remote control like teamviewer and the like?
i'll be back in 45 min. if you don't mind :)
Mark Sellars
@mark-sellars
@wget Yeah, if there is another application you like let me know. I have blue jeans and webex available at work. What ever I want available at home.
William Gathoye
@wget
We are following in DM to avoid the noise. We will write down the solution here wrt this issue after the meeting :)
William Gathoye
@wget
Ok. Meeting with @mark-sellars finished. He will provide me with the logs. On my side, I filled a request to the Choco sales team in order to get a Pro and a C4B license from you @ferventcoder =)

Hey, my ags package is failing on test again but I don't understand what is wrong
Érico Vieira Porto
@ericoporto
Sorry, I can't reproduce the Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.PowerShell.Security, Version=5.0.0.0' or one of its dependencies. and similar errors, I thin it's something with the test environment.
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
@ericoporto have you tested your package using the test environment?
Érico Vieira Porto
@ericoporto
It doesn't match the output I am seeing in the gist file.
Also if I do a rerun I just get a different gist file, most of them just stop at a point without any messages, it's weird because this isn't even installing my package, it's a different package that is my dependency.
And the other package IS approved.
Érico Vieira Porto
@ericoporto
I am fairly sure the error is in dotnet4.5 installation but I can't reproduce - things are working in my end.
Gary Ewan Park
@gep13
@ericoporto can you confirm if you have tested with this: https://github.com/chocolatey-community/chocolatey-test-environment
William Gathoye
@wget
@pauby I have working packages for OpenVPN (sill unpublished). I asked a few friends of mine to test them on their Windows fleet, but it is broken on Intune based env.
I cannot find the culprit, can I just release them as it in order to avoid again postponing that much expected release?
Paul Broadwith
@pauby
@wget If they work through Chocolatey and pass the Validator and Verifier I don't see any reason why you wouldn't publish them.
William Gathoye
@wget
Ok :)
Paul Broadwith
@pauby
@wget No updates on OpenVPN as yet and no new packages pushed?

Hi all, is this the right place to talk about the chocolatey-community repository? I have a PR submitted for a package that I use (k9s) and would like to get it reviewed.

My PR is chocolatey-community/chocolatey-coreteampackages#1668

@SayakMukhopadhyay this is the correct channel yes.
Reviewing the PR for the k9s package is on my TODO list, but unfortunately I have not yet had the time to do so.

@SayakMukhopadhyay
Understandable, thanks for the response :)
