NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

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 fontforge -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 fontforge -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

LICENSE

# FontForge Licensing

FontForge is available as a whole under the terms of the [GNU GPL](http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html), version
3 or any later version. 
However, almost all of its parts are available under the "revised BSD license" ([pdf](http://www.law.yi.org/~sfllaw/talks/bsd.pdf)) because FontForge was mostly written by George Williams, using that license.

The Revised BSD License is very permissive, and allows for code to be combined with other code under other licenses. 
There are many useful libraries available under copyleft libre licenses, such as the LGPL and GPL, which FontForge started to use in 2012. 
For example, Pango and Cairo are available under the LGPL.
Some features added since 2012 are licensed by their individual developers under the GPLv3.

## How To License Contributions

- Contributions to existing files must be made under the existing license for that file
- Contributions in new files should be made under the original Revised BSD License, but any license compatible with the GPLv3 is fine

The majority of FontForge was written by George Williams and published under the revised BSD license. 
This license is permitted to be compiled with added GNU GPL source code to build a FontForge executable program.

FontForge was known from 2000 to 2004 as PfaEdit, and was written and developed primarily by George Williams from 2000 until 2012.
It is published as free/libre software and distributed under the 3-clause BSD license. 
Later, when development slowed down and then stopped in 2012, the FontForge community began to take an interest in improving FontForge further with fixes, modifications, libraries, patches, and other additions which have been introduced under the same, or different, yet, compatible licenses.

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.
