zonefile LWRP cookbook


A cookbook to manage bind zonefile SOA and global records.

All records included in zonefile are not modified at all. Only SOA record, ORIGIN and global TTL are managed by this cookbook.


This recipe depends on Chef 0.10.10 features, such as chef_gem.


Just add this cookbook in your project metadata file to install zonefile gem dependency and bring LWRP to life :-).
