Spork seems interesting indeed. But I am in the same situation as you. We
are using mercurial not git.
I find the tight coupling to git in the chef world a little annoying.
Version control should be an orthogonal concern. I am sure there are some
great arguments why the whole world should use git… but still

You can freeze a cookbook. That will prevent new uploads without a version
bump. I like the knife-spork plugin for managing the freezing/bumping
My only issue with knife-spork was that it only worked with git repos (at
the time I was trying to use it), and our codebase at that customer was in
Subversion. So, knife-spork wasn’t useful to us.
But that was a while back, and I would hope that the plugin has progressed
to support other repo formats since then. Other than that, it seems to me
to be a really nice workflow tool.
