Cookbook Releases - Unsent draft edition


#1

Ohai Chefs,

I thought for sure I had sent this out previously, but I can’t find it anywhere in my sent messages. If you already received it, redundancy is good in operations :-).

In addition to the cookbook releases, we have a couple announcements about cookbooks.

First, Tim Smith has provided a lot of fixes and feature additions to our Nagios cookbook. He has agreed to help us maintain the cookbook going forward. We look forward to his continued leadership in this cookbook’s development, and awesomeness for Nagios+Chef users.

Second, David Petzel has agreed to take over maintenance of our Zenoss cookbook. As we do not use Zenoss internally or with any customers as part of a supported offering, we’ll transition this one fully to him.

Third, Xavier Lange agreed to take over maintenance of the god cookbook. The transition isn’t finished yet, but will be coming soon.

Finally, I’m taking on maintenance of ossec, samba, snort, and gnu_parallel.

This is part of an effort to focus our community cookbook development on the ones we actively use in our own infrastructure, have support agreements with our Hosted and Private Chef customers, or are through work by our services team. We’re looking for more folks to either help us maintain cookbooks, or take over maintenance entirely.

Thank you,
Joshua
