Description

New package name: fossil


fossil.portable is now deprecated because it's basically the only installation option, so the fossil package should suffice. This one will be unlisted soon.

It exists only for backward compatibility to provide a transitional dummy package for existing users and scripts which may still use this package ID.


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.
