9/14 Opscode Ticket Triage


#1

Hey folks,

We’re entering into a merge pass and release for Ohai this week. We
should have a release candidate within a week and release in two
weeks.

We’ve also done the first pass of a new process around getting COOK
tickets merged and released which started with the recent release of
apache2, so keep an eye on the progress over there as well, we’ve got
some good internal momentum.

Tommy Bishop has been added some missing specs lately and we’d really
like to thank him for that. If you’re interested in helping with Chef
but don’t have an itch to scratch, take a look at helping to increase
the code coverage. Inside the chef directory of the chef source,
you’ll find rake tasks for ‘spec’ and ‘spec:rcov’ which run the rspec
unit tests and calculate code coverage, respectively. I notice that we
don’t have any documentation for how to set up a development
environment for testing. If you’d rather help with documentation than
writing tests, we could use pages for that under How To Contribute [1]
on the wiki.
