4/30 Code Review


#1

The community team is growing at Chef and we’ve been successful at
getting more of the community managing cookbooks [1] that we used
juggle all ourselves. I’ve stepped out of Cookbook Code Review with
those guys. I’m pretty excited to see what they’ll do as their team
grows.

Meanwhile we’re catching back up on chef/ohai/mixlib code review after
ChefConf and a lot of releases took over our schedules.
