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 supermarket mailing list.

  • Add to run_list recipe['etckeeper'] for local using etckeeper
  • Set ['use_remote'] to true for daily auto push to remote:
    • Make ssh key and copy to ./files/default/etckeeper_key

This recipe will do two things

  • In the beginning of the chef-run, check if /etc is unclean. If yes, fail the chef-run.
  • After the chef-run, a report handler will commit the changes made to /etc during this chef-run.
