How do I install a specific version of the chef-client? I can’t find
this documented anywhere. The install.sh script takes a -v input to
specify the version number, but how do I get a list of version
numbers? The S3 bucket isn’t listable, so I can’t look through that.

I have to go back to an older version of the client than 12.0.0. The
decision to make the client wait interval + splay for it’s first run
makes it unusable.

“-v 11” will select the latest 11.x release
