Opscode Cookbook Updated Releases 8/6/2012


We’re getting caught up on the backlog of COOK tickets and pull
requests. Please remember that we see pull requests that have a COOK
ticket in the “Resolved” (untriaged/unmerged) state sooner, and that
we do require a contributor license agreement for all
contributions0. When making a contribution, we ask that you
please do not update the version in metadata.rb, or the CHANGELOG.md.

We’re also working on a new project that will help with testing
cookbooks, which was (mildly) hinted by Bryan McLellan and Andrew
Crump on the Opscode Blog recently2.

We have loads of great updates to the cookbooks listed below,
including better cross platform compatibility, more flexibility, and
bug fixes. Thank you everyone who has contributed to our cookbooks,
this time around and in the past. You’re awesome and make Chef better!
