This rule does not seem to detect that the following two notification lines are effectively the same thing:

notifies(:restart, resources(:service => "riak"))

notifies :restart, resources(:service => "riak")

The latter is detected by the rule, the former is not.

Additionally something like the following is not detected:

notifies :restart, "service[openvpn]"

Additionally if the service name happens to be a variable it won't detect it, example:

notifies :restart, resources(:service => riak)

Hi guys,

Just to put my 2p in. If you are using foodcritic 1.4.0+ this rule should be able to be rephrased as:

find_resources(ast).select do |resource|
  notifications(resource).any? do |notification|
    @coreservices.include?(notification[:resource_name]) and
      notification[:action] == :restart

While it's more readable the notifications method also fails to catch your first example. We should fix that.

It will match the third example using new-style notifications though. In general foodcritic rules won't resolve variable values as foodcritic is performing static analysis.
