Upgrade process


#1

I see that the wiki has information about upgrading from 0.9 to
0.10 and similar. Aside from that, the wiki’s other information
on the topic is… less than encouraging.

Has anyone developed a workable upgrade process for minor[sic]
revisions? Care to share? Have we re-embraced bash + SSH in a
for-loop?


#2

I’ve seen this: http://community.opscode.com/cookbooks/omnibus_updater
Caveat emptor - haven’t used it myself, but have heard good things.

Also - Omnibus packages for platforms have repos at yum.opscode.com and
apt.opscode.com - might be worth looking in to.

I just converted our rubygems deploy of chef to the omnibus using the
heavywater cookbook. It does a great job of deploying and making sure the
version of omnibus is the right one.

Highly recommended.

I suspect this is the same cookbook as the one on the community website.
It would be great if the maintainer would post the Github repo source
link on the Community website.
