Along side my /.chef/ subdirectory, there’s another named /checksums/.
As I’m trying to keep all my work in version control, and begin sharing
it with other developers, I need to understand whether these files must
also be kept and a little more about them.
My fellow team members aren’t Cheffy yet; no one’s begun using what I’m
keeping except me. Therefore, I haven’t observed the problems of sharing
them with with others yet (and haven’t simulated yet–I thought I’d ask
I assume these files are important and reading what I can find via
Google doesn’t encourage me to think I can just chuck them.
These files are numerous; I don’t wish to keep them unless they’re
crucial. (So, I’d like to the chuck them.)
I wonder how specific they are, to wit, if I’m sharing my node, role
and recipe definitions with others, will managing the /checksums/
subdirectory get in our way?
Any light someone could shed would be greatly appreciated.
