Bugs, Issues, and Feature Requests

With AtoMiC ToolKit, we have tried to provide you an ecosystem to automate HTPC and home server software maintenance. It works best if all software are installed and uninstalled through the ToolKit. If you already have a few things installed then the ToolKit may work but depending on how the software are configured you may encounter errors. If have any suggestions or feedback, please leave a comment. If you like it then spread the word by sharing this post. To contribute or report a bug/issues, head over to AtoMiC ToolKit GitHub page.
