Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

Crowd Cookbook

Chef cookbook
Build Status

This cookbook installs Atlassian's Crowd. It defaults to using PostgreSQL for
its DB and Nginx for its proxy.

It sets up a full working system after which you can run Atlassian's configuration
wizard. If you want more influence, you can write a wrapper cookbook for your
specific setup.
