I keep missing a couple of you on IRC, and Adam pointed out this venue
hey. are you working on packaging the mixlibs?
These are done. They’ve been in debian NEW for about a month. I’m not
sure why they’re still there, nor who to ask at this moment. The
automatic email says “Your package contains new components which
requires manual editing of
the override file. It is ok otherwise, so please be patient. New
packages are usually added to the override file about once a week.”
I try to keep tickets up to date on this stuff in JIRA, but for
real-time information you can check out qa.debian.org .
know how much work it would be to package the chef server and slice if we were to vendor all of the required gems into the dpkg?
About a day I think. There’s the man pages to be written, at least
skeleton’d. I made the ohai man page mostly from using help2man then
adding some verbiage.
I packaged the systemu gem to go along with the latest ohai release,
both  are waiting for a sponsor. Thom may be MIA, I really need
to find a backup sponsor.
