Chef Infra Client

prajakta shared

Hello folks! For the Infra client we are looking into fixing the pipelines. All of the issues we previously identified with OpenSUSE, Solaris and Aix are currently fixed.
We are currently seeing some issues locally in building and installing the chef gem, however do not see those issues in the pipeline. Trying to figure that out.
Once we have resolved all of the issues related to the builds we will start merging the PR's from the community that need to be a part of the GA release.
Thank you for everyone's help and patience as we work through these issues.
