Breaking changes to cookbooks coming


If you rely on any Chef managed cookbooks from the community site, please
take the time to lock down to the major version number that you currently
depend on.

For example, If you have a widgetfactory cookbook that depends on upstream
things, you might have a metadata.rb that looks like this:

depends ‘yum’, '~> 3.0’
depends ‘apt’, '~> 2.3’
depends ‘iptables’, '~> 0.12’
depends ‘apache2’, '~> 1.8’
depends ‘tomcat’, ‘~> 0.15’

I’ll send emails warning of new major versions as they come.
