CPMR0042 - ReleaseNotes Missing (nuspec)


This rule has been marked as a Guideline

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. Over time Guidelines can become Requirements. A package version can be approved without addressing Guideline comments but will reduce the quality of the package.


In the nuspec, there is a <releaseNotes /> element. It was found to be missing or empty in the package.

Please update the nuspec to include a <releaseNotes /> 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 as a comparison to your current package (ensure you have the latest version of Chocolatey).


The release notes field gives folks a way of knowing what has changed between versions of the software (and sometimes related to packaging changes).
