2/8 Opscode Ticket Triage


Another big week of cookbook ticket triage. It’s great seeing the
Windows love coming in.

We’re planning on looking at the big refactor of the Application
cookbook next week. I’ve got my fingers crossed that we will see
something come out of that, as we’ve been waiting a while for it.

The Opscode Engineering team continues to do significant work on our
Ruby Omnibus project, and a ton of interesting work on Private Chef,
but by the time it trickles out into the open source code base it
won’t really smell like that product any longer. Still, there’s some
serious automation afoot internally and at our customer sites that is
pretty impressive.

I’ve just pushed out a release candidate for Ohai 0.6.12, I’ll send
another email about that. I’ll begin merging for Chef 0.10.10 next
week (finally!). It looks like we might make doing some release
management part of my regular activity instead of scheduled work
(which risks being bumped). This will help stabilize the release

As always, please feel welcome to email me directly if there’s
something you would like to do in community and Opscode could help you
out with. I’ll find the right person for you.
