Cookbook CHANGELOG.rb?

Since we now create cookbooks with “chef generate cookbook” instead of the old “knife cookbook create”, cookbooks no longer get provided with a CHANGELOG.rb file by default. We use that file a lot in our older cookbooks. What do people do in the new environment?

  • Manually create a CHANGELOG.rb? (If so, why was it removed from the command in the first place?)
  • No longer track your cookbook changes?
  • Track changes somewhere else?

This could certainly be added to the default cookbook generator. I have opened a pull request that does just that. Feel free to weigh in on that pull request.
