As Chef has now stuck to the monthly release cadence for several months now (which is super cool ), we have a lot more minor revs floating around than we once did. As a cookbook author, this raises the question of what versions should be supported, what versions should be tested on, and how long each of those should last for. Compounding this is the fact that Chef 13 is not yet on the horizon, so I can count on a deus ex machina to reset the clock
How are others coping with this? Should we agree on some standard set of rules for “A+” community cookbooks like supporting everything in the current major release (which is what I’ve been doing but is getting unmanagable), or maybe the last N releases, or perhaps something like designating certain release to be LTS?
