As described in this Q&A I do not have a Windows system anymore. Do I really need a Windows system in order to maintain Chocolatey packages?
- Ketarin - will it run on Linux
- Powershell - could we run powershell on linux
- Testing - will the package be compatible with various windows systems, e.g. 7, 8, 10
Attempts to answer the questions
This post shows alternatives to ketarin on Linux, but I wonder whether it is possible to check the version of a certain package and updates it if newer when I see alternatives like Ubuntu update manager
According to this post it should be possible to run Powershell on Linux.
I could imagine that if powershell is able to run on Linux that a part of the testing could be done, but I wonder how to test the compatibilty? Spin up some windows boxes on Travis? Would that be possible, is that too cumbersome or do I need to pay money for the Windows licenses
