Matt Wrock from Microsoft about BoxStarter
Guest - Matt Wrock
[22:43:30] <Jaykul> FWIW, my 2c: I think a "moderated" feed (where you just trust the core chocolatey team to review packages, instead of trusting all the authors) is the answer to "trust" -- the idea being the core team says that yes, this module just downloads and installs "the real product" that it claims to.
<Jaykul> ## Have you heard rumors that chocolatey may move away from nuget?
<Jaykul> ## Are you involved in the chocolatey community at all?
<Jaykul> ## Are you (un)happy/neutral that Chocolatey has moved their lib/install folders to C:\ProgramData
<Jaykul> ## Are you (un)happy/neutral about the idea of expecting users to be "elevated" when running cinst?
<Jaykul> ## Does that mean boxstarter only works on machines that have access to the public internet? <-- I know it does, just want to bring it up
<Jaykul> ## What do you think about a "Moderated" feed like NuGet has for Microsoft
<Jaykul> ## Isn't virus scanning the package mostly useless, since the package is just a script that downloads from the web? Would you guarantee that the install.ps1 can't download anything without scanning it?
<Dave_Wyatt> ## Assuming that malicious code does make it into Chocolatey, what's the response? API keys revoked, packages taken offline, etc? How fast would that happen?
<JonWalz> if you use LastPass check out this tool http://blog.lastpass.com/2014/04/lastpass-now-checks-if-your-sites-are.html
<halr9000> Downloading SublimeText3 64 bit (http://c758482.r82.cf2.rackcdn.com/Sublime%20Text%20Build%203059%20x64%20Setup.exe
<Jaykul> halr9000: http://c758482.r82.cf2.rackcdn.com/Sublime%20Text%202.0.2%20x64%20Setup.exe <-- that's the "official" download link.
<Jaykul> Sorry, yeah, http://c758482.r82.cf2.rackcdn.com/Sublime%20Text%20Build%203059%20x64%20Setup.exe my point is that your url was the official one
<halr9000> e.g. http://boxstarter.org/package/nr/firefox
<mwrock_> http://boxstarter.org/WebLauncher has links to the firefox and chrome click once extensions at the end of the page

In This Episode
Tonight on the PowerScripting Podcast, we talk to Narayanan Lakshmanan from the PowerShell team about DSC
Guest - Narayanan Lakshmanan
<JimB_> ### for a DSC noob, how well does it compare with Puppet? Linux guys are pushing and I am not too familiar with it. Does an IT shop need both?
<marc_carter> ##DSC noob here too...any suggestions or some practical examples to gain some familiarity?
<alexandair1> ## when can we expect to get resources written by other product teams?
<stevenmurawski> ##Will Test-TargetResource tell you what's deviating if it fails?
<justpaul> ## will MS require the various teams to provide DSC resources (aka stop-ship, like they did with powerShell cmdlets)
<stevenmurawski> ##When will the DscResourceDesigner's Test-DscResource handle more complex schema.mofs?
<stevenmurawski> ##What's failing is the wave resources that you've released fail to validate with Test-DscResource
<stevenmurawski> ## How far downlevel will WMF5 be supported? 2008R2?
<stevenmurawski> ### What is N for WMF5?
<alevyinroc> totally unrelatedâ€¦on win 8.1, how would one get past â€œaccess deniedâ€ when trying to use location services (like this: http://www.verboon.info/2013/10/powershell-script-get-computergeolocation/)
