It looks like a volunteer has been found to maintain the openvpn chocolatey

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/08/09

The chocolatey package for OpenVPN has not been updated for quite a while. It looks like it has to do with the current dependency to verify the OpenVPN signature.

The current [Wayback] Chocolatey Software | OpenVPN 2.4.7 version is both outdated on the major version number ([Wayback/Archive.is] Release OpenVPN v2.5.3 release · OpenVPN/openvpn) and minor version ([Wayback/Archive.is] Release OpenVPN v2.4.11 release · OpenVPN/openvpn). The version 2.4 Windows installers are now called “Legacy Windows Installers”.

Luckily less than a day after the start of the [Wayback/Archive.is] RFM – openvpn · Issue #1024 · chocolatey-community/chocolatey-package-requests, a volunteer stepped forward.

Hopefully by now the package is being maintained again.
