Cookbook releases, Chef 11 day edition


Ohai Chefs,

As it’s still the same day we announced Chef 11, this is your “Chef 11
Edition” of the cookbook releases :-).

I want to give a shout out to David Crane for his updates to our
postgresql cookbook. Check out the notes below for details. His level of
detail and information in tickets and his pull requests is awesome. Thanks
