Requirements

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.

Guidelines

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.

Notes

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.

visipics has passed automated validation. It may have or may still fail other checks like testing (verification).
NOTE: No required changes that the validator checks have been flagged! It is appreciated if you fix other items, but only Requirements will hold up a package version from approval. A human review could still turn up issues a computer may not easily find.

The contents of the verification.txt and the license.txt don't provide enough information in order for me to know whether the contents of this package "can" be embedded. Can you please provide more information.

tunisiano (maintainer) on 20 May 2020 15:15:47 +00:00:

The Author has changed the rights so now we can't distribute it anymore

gep13 (reviewer) on 23 May 2020 19:40:36 +00:00:

In which case, can you update the package to use a download URL?

tunisiano (maintainer) on 24 May 2020 15:58:39 +00:00:

The new rules is do not distribute, and the only installer is on fosshub, so for this package, i don't think there is a solution...

flcdrg (reviewer) on 24 Jun 2020 09:40:39 +00:00:

I note that this software comes from Fosshub. Given https://github.com/chocolatey/package-validator/wiki/ScriptsDoNotDownloadFromFossHub and https://www.fosshub.com/tos.html, can you show if there's a license that allows the software to be redistributed, or that you have obtained permission from FossHub to redistribute the software?

We've found visipics v1.31.2.1 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 visipics v1.31.2.1 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'.

Description

VisiPics is a tiny, free application for Windows that will search for duplicate photos. You can search for duplicate images using three different filters: (1) Strict (will return almost identical results - the image is the same or slightly different), (2) Basic and (3) Loose (with much more differences). Additionally, you can also use the "Auto-Select" feature which will mark images with smaller, uncompressed, lower resolution copies as duplicates. The program has other features such as: unignore, unselect (deselect), ignore the folders or files. This software will work with most important formats: JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, PCX, TIFF, TGA and RAW images. According to the author, the software has been tested with 100.000 pictures with a size of 15 GB and the results were available in approximately 3 hours. Another advantage is the ability to delete duplicate files while the program is scanning for them - you don't have to wait to finish the scan. Although this program was made exclusively for Windows users, various other reviews claimed that the program runs great on Linux using Wine.

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).
