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.

Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.
