sorry guys, last one got out before i finished typing due to an overly
sensitive touchpad

I am trying to figure to best ways to work with cookbooks, collaborate w/
other cookbook authors, and separate “ingredients” (corporate data) from
recipes.

I have started putting a few here. Please add and correct whatever is
incorrect.

While the philosophy of chef is TIMTOWTDI, it would help to document
different “patterns” for configuring your chef repository and laying out
cookbooks. That will help us collaborate and grow as a community

The page Creating New Cookbooks
(http://wiki.opscode.com/display/chef/Creating+New+Cookbooks) on the
wiki, gives a high-level overview on Cookbook Best Practices.

In addition to this guide and the one I wrote on my blog[0], I’m
putting together a “style guide” for cookbooks, which will be posted
to the wiki at some point in the next couple weeks.
