espanso has failed automated validation.


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.

  • Binary files (.exe, .msi, .zip, etc) have been included without including a LICENSE.txt file. This file is required when including binaries More...
  • Binary files (.exe, .msi, .zip) have been included without including a VERIFICATION.txt file. This file is required when including binaries More...

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...
  • The iconUrl should be added if there is one. Please correct this in the nuspec, if applicable. More...
  • ProjectUrl and ProjectSourceUrl are typically different, but not always. Please ensure that projectSourceUrl is pointing to software source code or remove the field from the nuspec. More...
  • Title (title) matches id exactly. Please consider using something slightly more descriptive for the title in the nuspec. More...

Notes typically flag things for both you and the reviewer to go over. Sometimes this is the use of things that may or may not be necessary given the constraints of what you are trying to do and/or are harder for automation to flag for other reasons. Items found in Notes might be Requirements depending on the context. A package version can be approved without addressing Note comments.

  • Binary files (.exe, .msi, .zip) have been included. The reviewer will ensure the maintainers have distribution rights. More...

This is an FYI only. There is no action you need to take.

We've found espanso v0.6.1 in a submitted status and waiting for your next actions. It has had no updates for 20 or more days since a reviewer has asked for corrections. Please note that if there is no response or fix of the package within 15 days of this message, this package version will automatically be closed (rejected) due to being stale.

Take action:

  • Log in to the site and respond to the review comments.
  • Resubmit fixes for this version.
  • If the package version is failing automated checks, you can self-reject the package.

If your package is failing automated testing, you can use the chocolatey test environment to manually run the verification and determine what may need to be fixed.

Note: We don't like to see packages automatically rejected. It doesn't mean that we don't value your contributions, just that we can not continue to hold packages versions in a waiting status that have possibly been abandoned. If you don't believe you will be able to fix up this version of the package within 15 days, we strongly urge you to log in to the site and respond to the review comments until you are able to.

Unfortunately there has not been progress to move espanso v0.6.1 towards an approved status within 15 days after the last review message, so we need to close (reject) the package version at this time. If you want to pick this version up and move it towards approval in the future, use the contact site admins link on the package page and we can move it back into a submitted status so you can submit updates.

Status Change - Changed status of package from 'submitted' to 'rejected'.

#### What is a Text Expander?

A text expander is a program that detects when you type
a specific keyword and replaces it with something else.
This is useful in many ways:
* Save a lot of typing, expanding common sentences.
* Create system-wide code snippets.
* Execute custom scripts
* Use emojis like a pro.


## Key Features

* Works on Windows, macOS and Linux
* Works with almost any program
* Works with Emojis 😄
* Date expansion support
* Custom scripts support
* Shell commands support
* App-specific configurations
* Expandable with packages
* Built-in package manager for espanso hub
* File based configuration

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.
