I’d like to understand what you’re trying to achieve here. Consider:
default[‘mything’][‘version’] = ‘1.0’
remote_file “/tmp/foo” do
Then every time chef runs, it will look up the attribute, resolve it to a
string, and use that as part of the source.
If anywhere along the attribute inheritance model I change that to be
something else, say:
override[‘mything’][‘version’] = ‘2.5’
Then the resulting file on the system should still be ‘/tmp/foo’.
Does that answer the problem?

Any advice on how to approach this would be greatly appreciated!
