Today Cookstyle 5.19 was released with 2 new Chef cops bringing the total to 160 cops! There's also a large number of important improvements and bug fixes for the existing cops. As always, please let us know if you run into issues or have suggestions for new Cookstyle cops at https://github.com/chef/cookstyle/issues/
2 New Cops
ChefRedundantCode/GroupingMetadata cop removes the legacy
grouping metadata from the metadata.rb file. This metadata was never consumed by any Chef Infra services and does not need to be defined.
ChefStyle/OverlyComplexSupportsDependsMetadata cop cleans up overly complex methods of declaring
depends metadata via an array. This rule will detect and correct the array or each form of declaring this metadata when there are fewer than three items.
Overly complex metadata:
%w(windows apt).each |cb| depends cb end
depends 'apt' depends 'windows'
