chef_gem and Chef Sugar Incompatibility Post Mortem


#1

As you may know, we are hosting a public post mortem to discuss the release
regressions introduced in Chef 12.1.0 [1].

We will host a follow-up meeting to discuss some of the impacts that this
release had on another tool in the community, Chef Sugar. Chef 12.1.0
introduced some chef_gem resource warnings [2]. This caused a
compatibility issue with Chef Sugar [3].

During this meeting we will explore ways to improve our collaboration and
identify changes like this earlier in the process.

This will be run as a blameless postmortem where we hope to capture some
key
learnings and action items.

All follow up action items will be assigned to a team/individual before the
end
of the meeting. If the item is not going to be top priority leaving the
meeting,
we won’t make it a follow up item.

Just as a reminder, this post mortem will be occurring in about an hour and
a quarter. We’d very much appreciate as much input as possible about how to
improve.
Thanks,
