I’m not sure it’s any better than modifying the recipes, but you can get a
reference to a previously defined resource with code like this:
pkg = resources(:package => "tmux")
And then you can set a version on it:
ignore_failure(true) on it.
One way to structure this is to have a local cookbook that depends on the
upstream one, and runs the upstream cookbook via
include_recipe. After the
include_recipe statement, use code like the above to modify the resources
