You might want to look at fixing CHEF-4996 for this release. It’s on the
package building side, so in that sense there shouldn’t be any code
changes required to Chef itself, just the deb which is distributed. It
should be pretty trivial to correct, and was pointed today by a user in IRC.

Thanks for pointing this out Ryan.

After some investigation fixing this will be upgrading fpm. We think that
it will be a risky change to get in to 11.10.0 as we are in the RC stage
and historically we’ve been bitten by fpm version upgrades.

Unless this is a blocking issue for anyone, we are planning to fix this
right after 11.10.0 is released and the fix will be available in the next
version of chef.

Let me know if this sounds good.
