We don’t really have a method or process for banning people from our
mailing list. This might be a good topic for discussion as part of the
Community Summits, part of our RFC process, and / or move the discussion to
Douglas, et. al,
What we do have are some published community guidelines on the docs site
The guidelines include things like:
- Be welcoming, friendly, and patient.
- Be considerate.
- Be respectful.
- Be professional.
- Be careful in the words that you choose.
- When we disagree, let’s all work together to understand why.
Interacting with the community in a way that is outside of our community
guidelines is unacceptable.
Responses like "So it sounds like your basically saying this is a mess."
with seemingly little effort to understand the help that’s being offered is
disrespectful, unprofessional, and inconsiderate. It’s clear that you’re
struggling with trying to understand the way handlers work. It’s not clear
that you’re interested in working to understand how they work or try things
that will help.
The term for this type of interaction is “help vampire
http://www.skidmore.edu/~pdwyer/e/eoc/help_vampire.htm”. Douglas, you
are exhibiting some of the textbook behavior of a help vampire which is
going to lead to frustration for you and those who try to help you.
Eventually, your questions to the list will be ignored unless this
behavior improves. I don’t really think anyone wants that.
I am happy to discuss further with anyone at just about any time.

You said that using chef_handler is not an idea solution. If we look at
the alternatives, I still don’t understand where to put the files.
Anywhere on the filesystem. If you want to package it up and share it,
then you can create a rubygem, but this is overkill for many use cases.
You mentioned a require statement. There’s no require statement in the
client.rb file, so I don’t know where that’s supposed to go.
You add it yourself, at the top of the file.
If the files are present on the AMI before chef runs, I don’t know
where to place these files. Documentation would be immensely helpful.
