salt.states.chocolatey module

Manage Chocolatey package installs .. versionadded:: 2016.3.0

Note

Chocolatey pulls data from the Chocolatey internet database to determine current versions, find available versions, etc. This is normally a slow operation and may be optimized by specifying a local, smaller chocolatey repo.
