grocery_delivery released


For those of you who saw my keynote at ChefConf, you probably noticed I
mentioned a piece of software called grocery_delivery that keeps our backends
in sync with SVN. It’s a pretty simple script, but when we wrote it, it didn’t
seem like it fit a workflow others really wanted… but several people asked
for it at ChefConf, so I spent some time this week abstracting out the bits
specific to us into some hookpoints and a plugin so we could open-source it.

As of this point, it only works with SVN, but it could be adapted to git
fairly easily. It’s not the prettiest script in the world, but it gets the job

You can find grocery_delivery along with our chef-server-stats monitoring
script at our github repo:
