Opscode Ticket Triage 12/21


Hey Chefs,

I’m in Seattle at Opscode HQ this week and it’s a bit quiet here with
many out for the holidays. Still, we’re trucking along with triage and
getting ready for many Chef releases next year.

Speaking of releases, we ended up shipping Chef 0.10.8 as a single
patch bugfix a couple of days after 0.10.6. That was too bad, we don’t
like having to do that. We’ve got some nice Jenkins infrastructure
here this month and I’m personally hoping we build some cookbook level
testing into that as well to mitigate this sort of situation in the

We also opened up the Omnibus beta to a larger audience, including a
new front end web page and blogged about the spiffy Windows installer.


I had lunch today with an old colleague who is deploying Chef using
the MSI using Active Directory group policy. This is exactly the
definition of awesome. I kind of wish I had some Windows
infrastructure to administer still so I could enjoy revolutionizing
that process.

I hope those of you celebrating holidays are enjoying yourself, and
the rest of you I hope are just enjoying yourselves.
