Accepted Chef RFCs for Nov 13 2014-11-13
This week five RFCs have been accepted.
This defines an extension to the resource DSL to allow file-type resources
remote_file) to verify content before
continuing. The common use case for this is checking server configuration
files are valid. This RFC had been provisionally accepted several weeks ago but
was only merged this week.
This RFC defines the plan to migrate the Chef mailing lists from locally-hosted Sympa to Google Groups.
This RFC defines the new governance policy for Chef as a project, establishing an advisory board to provide input on the future of Chef. See my post for more information and an overview of the policy.
This RFC defines how Chef will be maintained going forward. This includes how how people will get commit access and how we will determine the roadmap. See my post for more information and an overview of the policy.
This lays out an overall plan for rebuilding chef-solo on top of chef-client’s
--local mode. This will be done incrementally, and 100% compatibility with
solo as it stands today is a requirement.
RFCs Being Discussed
Four RFCs have been discussed since the last community meeting.
This proposes adding a Chef resource to configure PowerShell DSC modules.
This proposal outlines adding a token-based authentication mechanism to Chef Server.
This proposes aliases for commonly used files in cookbooks to simplify the folder layout.
The proposal outlines adding a testing DSL to Chef recipes based on RSpec and Serverspec to allow for easier testing integration.
Due to the Thanksgiving holiday in the US, the next developer meeting has
been rescheduled to Tuesday, November 25th at 9AM PST.
As always, the meeting will be held in the
#chef-hacking channel on Freenode
IRC. Hope to see you there!
