<jasonmorgan> ## When do you think we'll see chocolatey enterprise?

<jaykul> ## What about OneGet

<johnfleenor> ## Does dsc have chocolatey resource?

<jaykul> ## How are you paying for all that bandwidth

<jaykul> ## Speaking of "store" is there a monetizing plan in the works? ;-)

<johnfleenor> ## can you use local nuget repository proxy like sonar nexus to host local chocolatey repo

<jasonmorgan> ## how much of that do you expect chocolatey to manage and how much do you expect businesses to do themselves?

<johnfleenor> ## how does chocolatey surface installation answer filles?

<johnfleenor> ## what is best a way to install groups of chocolatey packages?

<jasonmorgan> ## so business will be our  hosted Chocolatey repo?

<stuwee> ## Knowing little to nothing about choco, does it run in a PSH console?
