datadog::repository is not compatible withm yum 3.0.0 #89

The default value for gpgkey has changed in the yum cookbook 3.0.0. It is now set to true by default.

This will generate the following yum config:


With gpgcheck=1, datadog::repository fails with:
Package meld3-0.6.5-1.noarch.rpm is not signed

I opened a ticket and submitted a pull request to change the default value back to the previous behavior:

Another alternative would be to set gpgcheck to false in datadog::repository. See my commit in this pull-request.

Meanwhile a workaround is to rewind the yum_repository[datadog] resource by adding this in your recipe:

include_recipe 'datadog::dd-agent'

chef_gem 'chef-rewind'
require 'chef/rewind'

rewind 'yum_repository[datadog]' do
  gpgcheck false

Hi @alexism!

Thanks for the code. I saw that the maintainer of the yum cookbook denied the code change, which isn't wonderful, but thanks for taking the time to do it.

I hope to get to this next week!
