Github.com:opscode/cookbooks cf cookbooks.opscode.com

Hi,
Can anyone clarify the relation between these two?

The github site states:
"This repository is Opscode’s published, public cookbooks for Chef."
suggesting you might expect there is no difference.

And:
"This repository is considered “in development.” Released versions of
our cookbooks are posted on the Opscode Cookbook Community Site."
suggesting you might expect the github repo to be ahead of
cookbooks.opscode.com, but stil expect that the github repo contain
(somewhere in the git history) what is downloadable via
cookbooks.opscode.com

However, in the last few days its been clear that something can show
up on cookbooks.opscode.com, but not be in the github repo.
IMO that is perfectly fine. I’d just like to know if this is an
aberation, or ought to be expected?

Best wishes.

The Opscode cookbook community site is effectively a package index, like PyPI or RubyGems.org (cookbooks are the unit of packaging for Chef). It is provided by Opscode as a convenience to the community. The official Opscode cookbooks (which are those in Opscode’s cookbooks repo) are listed there, but so are many created by others.

OK so given the two diverge, if I grab a cookbook using knife, where
does the code it grab come from:
The community site, or the official Opscode cookbooks, i.e. the github repo?
