Good idea... but i'd need support from their dev team I guess. Are you in contact with them ?

No, I am not.
Maybe it is quite simple: The command line command to update a program is choco -upgrade {package name}
The problem may be that SUMo needs to know the name of the available packages.

... or choco be able to guess the package from a SUMo product name.
Should they be interested, please let me know. But as long as it is not straightforward, there's nothing I can do alone at SUMo level.

I checked some programs and found that they have the same name in SUMo and Chocolatey. What about this idea?:
SUMo provides a context menu entry "Update with Chocolatey" that simply runs "choco -upgrade {program name as in SUMo list}". Additionally there is a list like the ignore list, which is editable. In this list a user can add program names that are different in SUMo and Chocolatey. A context menu entry "Add to Chocolatey list" adds the program name in SUMo in the first column of the list, the user can add the name in Chocolatey in a second column. So for using the option with Chocolatey the user is fully responsible.
