    Hi Bill,
    
    I think you are basically talking about how you would mirror siv.zip and am happy for you to use whatever works for you.
    
    I am wondering how you would deal with a new SIV being released? Would you like to receive the e-mail I BCC to the other mirrors with siv.zip attached?
    
    Regards, Ray

Virus Scan Results

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.
