Sets up the default apt package repository for Chef Software, Inc. products.
Primarily intended to be consumed by the chef-ingredient cookbook.
- Only supports Ubuntu. May work on other Debian-family distributions. Other platforms don't make sense with apt repositories. However, not all platforms that this cookbook will work on have supported packages from the repository. See supported platforms. Users may need to override attributes in roles or wrapper cookbooks to get this to work, or write their own cookbooks entirely.
- Chef 11+
attributes/default.rb file contains comments with all the attributes that can be set to control how this cookbook sets up the repository.
Uses the attributes in
attributes/default.rb to control how the repository is configured.
Hard-codes Chef's public "current" repository. Used for situations where both stable and current repositories are desired.

A Note About Proxies
If an HTTP proxy is required to reach the configured repository, then that can be managed outside this cookbook using an apt preferences file. A very simple example can be rendered with a file resource:
file '/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01proxy' do content 'Acquire::http::Proxy "http://proxy.example.com:3128";' end
See the apt preferences documentation for more information and configurable options.
A Note About Ubuntu 10.04 and unsigned packages
Ubuntu 10.04, unlike later versions, will not install unsigned packages without adding a force option. If you should run into this, you can update your consuming resource as follows:
package 'chef-ha' do options '--force-yes' if platform?('ubuntu') && node['platform_version'] == '10.04' end
