Hi Chef Users mailing list,
I reached out on IRC regarding why derived attributes are not computed, even though the parent attribute gets correctly wrapped and overwritten.
I was directed to these two fantastic links, that illuminate what has been the source of a large amount of frustration in performing Chef development for me:
Does anyone know if there is development work from Opscode currently ongoing to make the wrapper development method a functional methodology?
Is there a facility / is there work currently under development to support env attributes in a role cookbook? That way you could properly test changes in a staged C/I workflow without instantly promoting changes to production.
