Welcome to the Chocolatey Community Package Repository! The packages found in this section of the site are provided, maintained, and moderated by the community.
Every version of each package undergoes a rigorous moderation process before it goes live that typically includes:
- Security, consistency, and quality checking
- Installation testing
- Virus checking through VirusTotal
- Human moderators who give final review and sign off
If you are an organization using Chocolatey, we want your experience to be fully reliable. Due to the nature of this publicly offered repository, reliability cannot be guaranteed. Packages offered here are subject to distribution rights, which means they may need to reach out further to the internet to the official locations to download files at runtime.
Fortunately, distribution rights do not apply for internal use. With any edition of Chocolatey (including the free open source edition), you can host your own packages and cache or internalize existing community packages.

To edit the metadata for a package, please upload an updated version of the package.
Chocolatey's Community Package Repository currently does not allow updating package metadata on the website. This helps ensure that the package itself (and the source used to build the package) remains the one true source of package metadata.
This does require that you increment the package version.

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).

fields displayed by default for any given command may change between
releases of bytemark-client. Use the 'json'
listcommands for any scripting.

Changes / Fixes
- specifying --yubikey will now prompt you to login again if your current
auth token was not created using a yubikey
- some commands were not correctly setting a default account, forcing the
end user to specify their server in server.group.account form, or their
group in group.account form. This has now been fixed and should be
consistent across all commands.
- the --group global flag / config var was being ignored. Now it gets
- 401 Unauthorized errors are now handled gracefully. These errors occur
when your authentication token is invalid or unset, whereas 403
Forbidden errors occur when your token is valid but you do not have
permission to access something.

under show account / list servers.

client . Admin commands can only be used by cluster admins.

output to the log file during reimaging and server creation.
