added curl to automatic packages

Oh sorry, you’re right. Older curl versions get deleted on the website.
There exists a method for an automatic package that downloads the current curl version, extracts it and puts the files into the package. This could be a possible solution:
I know, this is quite a “dirty” way, but it’s because of Ketarin’s automation limitations. I use it already for my automatic YUMI package.
Would this method be OK for the curl package? Or do you have a better idea?
Actually chocolatey autopackages now has a known script it looks for to run arbitrary powershell, which could download and arrange the files.
Look at the release notes here - http://chocolatey.org/packages/ChocolateyPackageUpdater
How does it work?
I placed a ChocoPkgUp.ps1 file into the curl package folder (C:\Chocolatey\chocolateyautomaticpackages\curl in this case), but it doesn’t get executed by chocopkgup. Is there a special option that needs to be added to chocopkgup? The output of chocopkgup --help doesn’t mention it, and also the text from the release notes doesn’t provide additional information.
@ferventcoder, can you give me an answer for my previous question? I would like to conclude this PR and the others.
Perhaps it is a bug in the tool. It should copy it over to the output folder and then run the ps1 file.
Can you reproduce this bug?
Can you fix this bug?
I will take a look at it later today or tomorrow. I hit the high priority items
