1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade wsl-alpine -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade wsl-alpine -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

WSL Alpine DistroLauncher
Introduction
This is the Alpine Launcher implementation for a Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) distribution.

Note: This project is written in C++.

Goals
The goal of this project is to enable:

Allow devolopers to use Alpine on their Windows machines for simple tasks (basically everything except kernel modules)
Allow developers to use the WSL with a very low footprint (compared to debian/ubuntu)
Use the official tar.gz userland release without building a custom userland tar.gz
Make the project "self maintained", i.e. don't require to ship any dependencies that require being updated and automatically pull the latest stable userland from the official source (WIP)
Project Status
This project is an active repo maintained by agowa338.

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).
