cookbook 'yumrepo', '= 0.16.0'
The yumrepo cookbook has been deprecated
Author provided reason for deprecation:
The yumrepo cookbook has been deprecated and is no longer being maintained by its authors. Use of the yumrepo cookbook is no longer recommended.
You may find that the yum-corporate cookbook is a suitable alternative.
Installs and configures EPEL, ELFF, Dell, and VMware yum repositories.

Manages Yum Repository files in /etc/yum.repos.d on CentOS / RHEL 5.x.
Yum repositories included in this recipe:
EPEL, ELFF, Dell OMSA, Dell Community, Dell Firmware, VMware Tools, and more...
This cookbook requires RHEL or CentOS 5.x, and newer.
It has not been tested on other platforms. It probably will
not work with RHEL 4 or CentOS 4, especially if you have not
taken action to manually install yum on that platform.
RHEL 6 support is fairly well tested in the dell, vmware-tools, and
epel recipes. Let me know if you find a platform 6 bug, related to
any one of the recipes.
The yumrepo::dell recipe requires Dell manufactured hardware. This
recipe should automatically disable itself if non-Dell hardware is
detected by Ohai
A breaking change in this cookbook is the introduction of an upgrade
recipe for vmware-tools. Since VMWare does not support upgrades
on their packaged vmware-tools, I created a vmware-tools-upgrade
recipe to migrate from vmware-tools 4.1 to 5.0u1. You should
ensure the yumrepo recipes are not in a base role, until all your nodes
have been migrated to 5.0u1. Due to this incompatibility, vmware-tools
has been removed from the default recipe. If you still need vmware-tools
for ESX 4.1, use the previous version of this cookbook 0.15.4.
The yumrepo::vmware-tools recipe requires a VMWare Virtual Machine.
This recipe should automatically disable itself if non-VMWare hardware
is detected by Ohai.

- Removes vmware-tools for ESX 4.1 installed with this cookbook. Then includes the yumrepo::vmware-tools recipe to re-install VMWare Tools compatiblie with ESX 5.0u1. This must be in your run list before the yumrepo::vmware-tools recipe to successfully upgrade the tools with the recipe.
