Chef Run Errors with Minitest-Handler

Hi everybody,

I’m using the minitest-handler cookbook. The tests pass and the chef run
seems to be successful in the end, but there are lots of errors logged to
stdoud, e.g.:

[2012-12-02T20:47:52+00:00] INFO:

[2012-12-02T20:47:52+00:00] ERROR:

Full chef run output here:

Is this the expected behaviour?

It is expected in the sense that this is currently the output you will
see for any cookbooks in the run_list that don't have tests defined. In
previous versions of Chef the error output was likely less intrusive
since we didn't have error inspectors outputting what is usually very
helpful information.

I just opened a pull request here:

It is a bit of a hack but it does reduce the noise substantially.
