I noticed that the Opscode Chef cookbooks don’t tend to support Ubuntu
Hardy is a Long Term Service (LTS) release which means Canonical will
support it for 5 years instead of turning off the apt repositories
after 18 months.
I was at a client site the other day and notice apt-get wasn’t working
on their ubuntu 7.10 servers. There is a workaround but it’s a nasty
reminder that you really only get 18 months support on the standard
Is there interest here for Hardy recipes? Are there reasons Hardy is
problematic for chef users?
