Chef Board of Governance Report

I’d like to highlight that the report from the first CBGB meeting has been published on the Chef blog. Thanks to all of the members of the board for a hugely productive meeting.

Some noteworthy parts of the day:

We defined a Mission Statement, Vision and Core Values for the Chef Community.

Our Mission

The Chef community exists to create a welcoming, transformative, and transparent environment that enriches the daily life of Chef users.


Chef community members feel safe, supported, and effective participating in and contributing to the Chef ecosystem.

We also discussed the technical direction of the project, and also what it means for an individual piece of software to be part of the Chef maintenance policy.

I encourage you all to read the blog post for further details.
