To understand how to leverage RightScale's Open Source Cookbooks for accelerated test and development purposes.
In an effort to promote community involvement and innovation on the RightScale platform, we've launched a public repository of RightScale's Open Source Cookbooks. The goal of the project is to help facilitate accelerated development amongst the RightScale user community, particularly those interested in developing ServerTemplates using Chef.
Create a Repository object that points to your forked version of RightScale's Open Source cookbook repository and import all of its cookbooks.
Now that you've imported the cookbooks from the forked repository you can add any of them to an editable HEAD version of a ServerTemplate.
You now have a Chef test bench for developing and testing new Chef cookbooks and recipes of your own. When you've developed new Chef recipes that you think would benefit other Chef users in the RightScale community, we encourage you to submit them so that they can be merged into the main tree so that other users don't have to "recreate the wheel" themselves.
To submit your Chef cookbooks and recipes, perform a Pull Request from your forked repository on GitHub.
