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.

Data bags

Password for NSCA can be described in data bag node['nsca']['data_bag_item']. There should be an item which name is the value of node['nsca']['data_bag_item']. In our case it is set to data bag "apps" and item to "nsca".
