@tas50: I believe it in this case it was related to an issue with the services that have since been resolved, so it affected every package pushed during a certain window.

In the future, if you have a package that is stuck in the pending automated review, you can leave a review comment, and a moderator should take a look at it then.
If you are talking about the waiting for maintainer status, that is intentional, as it is not put in the moderation queue unless both tests pass (or the maintainer leaves a comment).

I want to self-reject a package because a new version of the application was released. I can't find the option how to see them in the help page.

@RalfEs73: You can only self-reject if one of the test is failing. If both tests are passing, only a moderator can reject that version. So, in that case, please leave a review comment for a moderator to reject that package.

Hi all! I was wondering if it is possible to “transfer” a package from one author to another... I’m publishing a Microsoft package and they are wondering about including the publication in their own pipeline... Is this possible or common? What should I do?
TheCakeIsNaOH
@thecakeisnaoh:naoh.host
[m]
piraces: It is quite possible. First, if they do not already have a Chocolatey account, they need to create one. Second, they give you their account name. Third, you click on the manage maintainers button (on the page for the package), type in their account name, and click add maintainer.
There is some documentation here, but this is more focused on if the current/previous maintainer is MIA: https://docs.chocolatey.org/en-us/community-repository/maintainers/package-maintainer-handover

Hi, I want to push a new version of my package to choco, but it says that the old version must first be reviewed. Is there a possibility to delete the old version and upload the new one? https://chocolatey.org/packages/drasyl
TheCakeIsNaOH
@thecakeisnaoh:naoh.host
[m]

@KevinRoebert: Unless there is malware or sensitive information, packages are generally not deleted. However, if you need to push a newer version, the current version can be rejected, which will allow you to push a different version.

This is normally only done if the software has one download URL where updated versions show up as they are released, or if download URL(s) are removed after a new one is released. But if the previous version of the software is still available for download, it is generally preferred that the maintainer wait for a review, then after the package has been approved, they can push newer versions.

Hello. Where can I find a guide on how to upload my template package to the community packages site?
TheCakeIsNaOH
@thecakeisnaoh:naoh.host
[m]

@Davis8988: There is some documentation here: https://docs.chocolatey.org/en-us/create/create-packages#push-your-package

Or you can go to https://chocolatey.org/account, and scroll down to the "Example Usage" section

You will need a chocolatey.org account to upload your package.

Hi all, I posted a new version of a package I maintain, and it's passed all tests. I know there's a manual step involved to get it published, so I'm posting it here in case someone can take a look: https://chocolatey.org/packages/dtc-msys2/1.5.1

@carlescufi: The package is in the queue to be looked at by a moderator.

Hi all, I pushed a new version of a package and i have a doubt. Updates are always moderated manually or only when there are relevant changes in the package?

Sorry, just found it. For the record: all new versions are human moderated (https://docs.chocolatey.org/en-us/community-repository/moderation/#mainContent) unless is a trusted package (https://docs.chocolatey.org/en-us/faqs#what-is-a-trusted-package)

Hello, has anyone dealt with this error before?
WARNING: User (you) cancelled the installation. ERROR: Running ["C:\Users\legen\AppData\Local\Temp\chocolatey\notion\2.0.8\Notion Setup 2.0.8.exe" /S ] was not successful. Exit code was '5'. Exit code indicates the following: User (you) cancelled the installation..
I'm not aware of what I might be doing to stop the installation. I'm not touching the machine and I had no issues installing or updating this package recently. There's no one else on the disqus for this package stating similar issues, yet a google of this error suggests a package issue. The package name is notion.
Please let me know what else I should try.
TheCakeIsNaOH
@thecakeisnaoh:naoh.host
[m]

@penguinairlines: I would suggest making a comment on the disqus for that package, or create an issue on the package repository.

If it is actually installing the newer package version, the validExitCodes in the package should be updated to include 5. Otherwise, that looks like a problem with the software installer. You could see if the installer logs anywhere (or if there is a logging parameter for the installer), or you could try to see if running it manually gives you any clues.

please, this package need parameters for work that's the reason the automatic test fails
I send the package but is in awaiting moderation

@knxroot The moderators will pick your package up when they can. If you have a comment to make on the tests failing then please add a moderation comment on the package page and the moderators will see that when they pick it up.

Hi everyone
I've installed Docker 2.4 quite some time ago using Chocolatey (my OS is Win 10). Since updating Docker using choco upgrade all always failed, I did the updates manually via the Docker itself (right-click → Check for Updates → etc.). Now I'm on version 3.2.

Since I want to get rid of this manual update process, I wanted to uninstall Docker from Chocolatey. But executing choco uninstall docker-desktop fails with ERROR: Exception calling "GetFullPath" with "1" argument(s): "Illegal characters in path.".

Of course, I could uninstall Docker the usual Windows way. But how would I remove Docker from Chocolatey so that I can do a fresh install?

I've also posted the question on StackOverflow
TheCakeIsNaOH
@thecakeisnaoh:naoh.host

@mu88: You can remove the package without running the uninstall script or the automatic uninstall by using the -n and --skipautouninstaller switches. For example `choco uninstall docker-desktop -n --skipautouninstaller.
