Cookbook Releases 4/16 (Snow in Spring Edition)


#1

Ohai Chefs!

ChefConf is NEXT WEEK!! I’m excited to see many of you there. If you want to go but haven’t registered, you should do so as soon as possible. We’re anticipating a sold out event.

We have a few cookbook releases for you today. The mysql cookbook is getting a lot of configuration specific tickets opened lately, and we’d really like it converted to use the “attribute driven” configuration a la postgresql. Does anyone have cycles to help make that happen? See this ticket: http://tickets.opscode.com/browse/COOK-2759.
