Some command line options for omnitruck install.sh not documented


#1

Ohai Chefs,

not sure if this is the best place to raise this.

While working on a PR for a related issue in Vagrant [0], I noticed
that the -d and -f command line options of the omnitruck
install.sh [1] are not officially documented yet here:
https://docs.chef.io/install_omnibus.html

So what do they do?

  • if neither -d or -f are specified the omnibus package is
    downloaded to a transient temp directory
  • if -d (directory) is specified the omnibus package will be
    downloaded to that directory with its original filename being
    preserved
  • if -f (path to filename) is specified the omnibus package will be
    downloaded to that specific filename

You can find a bit more detailed description in [1].

Mind adding these to the official docs?

Cheers,
Torben
