NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade gittfs -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade gittfs -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

git-tfs is a two-way bridge between a TFS server and a local git repository, similar to git-svn. It fetches TFS changesets into a git repository, and lets you push your updates back to TFS. It could also be used to migrate from TFVC to a git repository.

$sysDrive = $env:SystemDrive
$gittfsPath = "$sysDrive\tools\gittfs"

if(test-path $gittfsPath) {
	write-host "Cleaning out the contents of $gittfsPath"
	Remove-Item "$($gittfsPath)\*" -recurse -force

Install-ChocolateyZipPackage 'gittfs' '' $gittfsPath
Install-ChocolateyPath $gittfsPath

write-host 'git-tfs has been installed. Call `git tfs` from the command line to see options. You may need to close and reopen the command shell.'

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.

Important: this version of git-tfs no more support checkin policies for TFS2012 and TFS2013. If you still need it, please use v0.29

  • When cloning a whole TFS Project Collection ($/) without specifying a local repository name, clone into "tfs-collection" instead of erroring with "Invalid Path". (#1202 by @0x53A)
  • FindMergeChangesetParent now also takes into account the path of the changes. This should avoid detection of incorrect parent when a changeset has merges in different branches at once. (#1204 by @Laibalion)
  • Provide way to delete all remotes in a single call (#1204 by @Laibalion)
  • Add .net462 and windows10 long path support. See doc to enable it. (#1221 by @pmiossec)
  • Fix bug where checkin attempts to remove a non-empty directory. (#1249 by @m-akinc)
  • Line endings are now properly normalized when pushing changes to TFS if core.autocrlf is set to true (#1210 by @JeffCyr)
  • Fix merge commits connecting to wrong parent (#1264 by DotNetSparky)
  • Now possible to clone a deleted branch (#1263 by magol)
  • Fix a issue that commits in a branch are lost if they are older then the first commit in a branch that are merging from this branch. (#1263 by magol)
  • added new parameter --no-parallel to fix #1242

    • git (≥ 2.5.0)
