ddu has failed automated validation.

Requirements

Requirements represent the minimum quality of a package that is acceptable. When a package version has failed requirements, the package version requires fixing and/or response by the maintainer. Provided a Requirement has flagged correctly, it must be fixed before the package version can be approved. The exact same version should be uploaded during moderation review.

  • The PackageSourceUrl element in the nuspec file should be a valid Url. Please correct this More...
Guidelines

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.

  • In the Description element of the nuspec file a potentially invalid Url has been found. Recommendation is to fix this URL More...
Suggestions

Suggestions are either newly introduced items that will later become Guidelines or items that are don't carry enough weight to become a Guideline. Either way they should be considered. A package version can be approved without addressing Suggestion comments.

  • The nuspec has been enhanced to allow more information related to the software. More... Please consider adding one or more of the following to the nuspec, if available:
    • docsUrl - points to the location of the wiki or docs of the software
    • mailingListUrl - points to the forum or email list group for the software
    • bugTrackerUrl - points to the location where issues and tickets can be accessed
    • projectSourceUrl - points to the location of the underlying software source

ddu 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.

ddu has failed automated testing.
This is not the only check that is performed so check the package page to ensure a 'Ready' status.
Please visit https://gist.github.com/9ddbbe860054e3c3a424a47058849b66 for details.
The package status will be changed and will be waiting on your next actions.

  • NEW! We have a test environment for you to replicate the testing we do. This can be used at any time to test packages! See https://github.com/chocolatey/chocolatey-test-environment
  • Please log in and leave a review comment if you have questions and/or comments.
  • If you see the verifier needs to rerun testing against the package without resubmitting (a issue in the test results), you can do that on the package page in the review section.
  • If the verifier is incompatible with the package, please log in and leave a review comment if the package needs to bypass testing (e.g. package installs specific drivers).
  • Automated testing can also fail when a package is not completely silent or has pop ups (AutoHotKey can assist - a great example is the VeraCrypt package).
  • A package that cannot be made completely unattended should have the notSilent tag. Note that this must be approved by moderators.

Pauby (reviewer) on 09 Jul 2020 11:24:02 +00:00:

Hi, a couple of issues / suggestions / questions:

  1. The <licenseUrl> needs to point to a license for the software which it currently doesn't. If the software is freeware, then point to the official declaration of that.
  2. The <projectUrl> needs to point to the 'home page' for the software. You have it pointing to a forum which would be better in the <mailingListUrl> field;
  3. Line 7 in your chocolateyInstall.ps1 is not needed. Can you remove it?

Thanks.

I've corrected in the latest, you can refuse this one.

rejected as requested by maintainer
Status Change - Changed status of package from 'submitted' to 'rejected'.

Description

Display Driver Uninstaller is a driver removal utility that can help you completely
remove Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) display card drivers and packages (AMD/NVIDIA)
from your system without leaving leftovers behind; including registry keys, folders
and files, services, and the driver store.

The AMD/NVIDIA video drivers can normally be uninstalled from the Windows Control
panel, this driver uninstaller program was designed to be used in cases where the
standard driver uninstall fails, or whenever you need to thoroughly delete NVIDIA
and ATI video card drivers.

The current effect after you use this driver removal will be similar as if its the
first time you install a new driver just like a fresh, clean install of Windows.
As with any tool of this kind, we recommend creating a new system restore point
before using it, so that you can revert your system at any time if you run into
problems.

Usage

  • The tool can be used in Normal mode but for absolute stability when using DDU, Safe
    Mode is always recommended.
  • Make a backup or a system restore. (but it should normally be pretty safe.)

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.
