Have 37signals permanently withdrawn their public Chef cookbook
repository? If so, this seems an unfortunate loss, and I wonder
if anyone has a copy of their cookbooks that were licensed to
allow for redistribution. I frequently find their cookbooks
referenced on the Web, implying that they are useful and/or
examples of good work.
I noticed a few weeks ago that the applicable link on their open
source page led to a nonexistent or unavailable GitHub
repo. I “tweeted at them” about this, and though there was no
response, they removed the link from their site shortly
thereafter. The old version of that page is available via
Wayback Machine. I mentioned the loss a bit more publicly on
Twitter last week, cc’ing @opscode, but have yet to find
anyone else discussing this, on Twitter or elsewhere, and there’s
no mention of it on their blog.
