Package resource retries?


#1

Resources have ‘retries’ and ‘retry_delay’ attributes.

How do I specify that I want ALL package resource convergences to be
retried 3 times if they fail, and with a 5 second delay between each try?

Seems I have to set these explicitly as part every package declaration?


#2

you dont have that in Chef. Puppet has this global default thing. You can
monkey patch , but i cant think of a clean solution straight away. It would
be nice to have this feature though!

#3

I second this, it would be nice to be able to portably modify some of these
defaults, instead of monkey patching.
