Upgrading to latest version of a gem?


#1

We are running chef-0.10.10 and are encountering a problem with gems. I
have looked but can not find a way to write a gem resource so that it is
always updated to the latest version if one is available. My first attempt
was:

gem_package “foo” do
action [:install, :upgrade]
end

But this never upgrades foo even if there is a later version on the
gemserver. Is it possible to get it to upgrade automatically, or do I have
to specify an explicit version as well?

action :upgrade ought to work, this sounds like a bug.
