Noop or dry run of chef-client


Hi all

I need to implement simple noop i.e dry run of chef-client as we want to
know what resources chef-client is going to modify.

I know that noop mode is not available at this time but we are not
seeking a fancy, comprehensive, generic solution,
we need just for a couple of resources, mostly cookbook file .

I thought that I can monkey patch resource provider but I am not sure,
if this is a right way,

Does anyone has any idea on that issue ?
