Community.opscode.com/cookbooks - is OutDated, when using Berkshelf. Why?


#1

I’ve moved to using chef-repo with a Berksfile on new chef-server.

Define dependencies, as read in Berks off site:

#sitehttp://api.berkshelf.com

From opscode


cookbook ‘nut’

cookbook ‘openvpn’

But I was very surprised when I found that the cookbooks downloaded from
community.opscode.com/cookbooks outdated instead of github.

What do you think about this?

And what to do?

Specify the use only github https urls in Berksfile with all cookbook’s as
below ?

cookbook ‘nut’, git: ‘https://github.com/divergentlogic/cookbooks-nut

cookbook ‘openvpn’, git: ‘https://github.com/xhost-cookbooks/openvpn.git

etc

The community site includes “published” cookbooks. The code on github is the bleeding edge.

Additionally, there is a slight delay between when a new cookbook is pushed to the community site and when the Berkshelf API server indexes it.

Ok.
Is the master branch cookbooks “opscode-cookbooks” on github are not always
stable?

Correct. We usually test our cookbooks more before release than every
time we merge a contribution, for the efficiency benefit.
