This rule has been marked as a Requirement.

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.

Please update the nuspec to include a <tags /> element that is non-empty. If your nuspec file is missing this field, you should run choco new testpkg and look at the output from that (ensure you have the latest version of Chocolatey).


Tags aid in categorization of packages and underlying software. Tags should be relevant to the software that is being installed. It will give folks more options when searching for particular software on the site and may turn up in results it may have not otherwise came up in.
