Core Chef Resource Checklist

Before suggesting a resource for inclusion please make sure your suggestion meets these criteria for resources built into Chef:

  • Automates an operating system component that ships by default on systems such as authentication, raid, disk partitions, firewalls, containers, or virtualization systems.
  • Does not attempt automate 3rd party applications such as database, web, or application servers, which are best suited for cookbooks due to their fast moving nature.

Describe the resource:

What operating systems would it run on?
