During the implementation of CHEF-542 (cookbook tarball CRUD for the
server), we took the opportunity to rectify CHEF-754, which involves the
reverse order in which repositories in the Chef::Config.cookbook_path config
variable were used for overlaying cookbooks. If you’re messing around with
HEAD now or upgrading to 0.8.0 when it’s released, you will need to reverse
the entries in your server’s config.
Keep on cookin’,
