+Opscode Public Cookbooks for Chef
+=================================
+
+This repository is the primary project source of Opscode's published, public cookbooks for Chef. This repository is considered "in development." Published cookbooks are shared by Opscode on the Chef Community Site.
+
+Cookbooks in this repository are only ones maintained and supportable by Opscode. We do provide bug fixes
+
+Using this Repository
+=====================
+
+Opscode does not recommend that you use this repository directly, either as a submodule or as a "canonical" repository. Chef Cookbooks are "packages" for managing resources in your infrastructure, and there are as many ways to manage the various pieces of software provided here as there are different infrastructures. These cookbooks reflect our opinions about the best ways to manage these infrastructure components with Chef.
+
+We recommend you install our cookbooks into your Chef repository from the Chef Community site, and uploaded to your Chef Server with the command-line tool "knife".
+
+ knife cookbook site install COOKBOOK
+ knife cookbook upload COOKBOOK
+
+Use of this repository is recommended for developers who wish to contribute fixes to Opscode's cookbooks.
+
+Bugs
+====
+
+Like any software, there may be bugs in our cookbooks. You can open a ticket in the COOK project at:
+
+* http://tickets.opscode.com
+
+If you know the fix for the bug, you can contribute it. See __Contributing__ below.
+
+Do note that if you downloaded a cookbook from the community site that is not maintained by Opscode, you'll need to contact the maintainer of that cookbook for contributing fixes.
