winlibs-llvm-free has passed automated validation. It may have or may still fail other checks like testing (verification).
NOTE: No required changes that the validator checks have been flagged! It is appreciated if you fix other items, but only Requirements will hold up a package version from approval. A human review could still turn up issues a computer may not easily find.


Guidelines are strong suggestions that improve the quality of a package version. These are considered something to fix for next time to increase the quality of the package. Over time Guidelines can become Requirements. A package version can be approved without addressing Guideline comments but will reduce the quality of the package.

  • The iconUrl should be added if there is one. Please correct this in the nuspec, if applicable. More...
  • This packages has used a function that doesn't have an automatic undo on uninstall, so it will also need an uninstall script. Please correcting that by adding a chocolateyUninstall.ps1 to the package to undo the action. More...
  • The package script downloads a file outside of using built-in helpers. Scripts should use the built-in helpers to download files. More...

winlibs-llvm-free has passed automated testing.
This is not the only check that is performed so check the package page to ensure a 'Ready' status.
Please visit for details.
This is an FYI only. There is no action you need to take.

Hi, there are a couple of things to address.

  • Can you please include the checksums inside the chocolateyInstall.ps1 file instead of downloading them at runtime.
  • Can you please add a chocolateyUninstall.ps1 script to clean up the system path during uninstall.
    Thanks, TheCakeIsNaOH

We've found winlibs-llvm-free v1020.800.51 in a submitted status and waiting for your next actions. It has had no updates for 20 or more days since a reviewer has asked for corrections. Please note that if there is no response or fix of the package within 15 days of this message, this package version will automatically be closed (rejected) due to being stale.

Take action:

  • Log in to the site and respond to the review comments.
  • Resubmit fixes for this version.
  • If the package version is failing automated checks, you can self-reject the package.

If your package is failing automated testing, you can use the chocolatey test environment to manually run the verification and determine what may need to be fixed.

Note: We don't like to see packages automatically rejected. It doesn't mean that we don't value your contributions, just that we can not continue to hold packages versions in a waiting status that have possibly been abandoned. If you don't believe you will be able to fix up this version of the package within 15 days, we strongly urge you to log in to the site and respond to the review comments until you are able to.

New package uploaded with changes requested:
Checkums are hardcoded back into the installchocolatey.ps1 scripts
chocolateyuninstall.ps1 was created and path is cleaned up during uninstall

Would you like this version to be rejected?

SteelShot (maintainer) on 13 Mar 2021 21:04:15 +00:00:

Yes, please. While it works fine apart the uninstall path removal, i've significantly changed the versioning on the choco package due to incompatible (nuisance mostly) with the versioning of the software. One less version with inconsistent versioning, the better.

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).
