I propose we stop referring to the parameters passed to resources as
attributes, and call them parameters unilaterally. For example, a
file’s owner, or package’s version. I have two main reasons for this.
- Semantic cohesion with the ‘params’ hash in definitions.
- Potential confusion with node, role or cookbook attributes.
- (Bonus!) Folks in #chef-hacking are supportive of this.
This is definitely a semantics topic, but an important one.
Documentation updates to the wiki will be required, and potentially
other pages. This also may require a mental shift, depending on how we
talk about this aspect of Chef.
