G'day Patrick,

I'm more than happy for you to do it. You have my explicit permission to package, bundle & distribute in 
any way you see fit. Those binaries already have my copyright attribution, and no further credit is 

I will say I pretty much stopped development of those applications in
2010 and don't have any plans to update them in the future, however I understand people still use 
them. I just don't really offer support further than answering the odd question.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
