+# Old Issues Triage
+From https://github.com/infochimps-labs/ironfan/issues/102 with love. Deleted ownership, and everything that was done or has its own issue.
+
+## Must Do
+* merge volumes into silverware. merge ebs_volumes into ec2 cookbook
+* Basic CI testing of cookbooks
+* RSpecs for silverback (lib and knife tools)
+* RSpecs for silverware are mostly in place -- ensure they are.
+* push cookbooks to community.opscode.com
+* refine and explain updated git workflow
+
+## Docco
+Use the [opscode EC2 fast start](http://wiki.opscode.com/display/chef/EC2+Bootstrap+Fast+Start+Guide) as a guide -- our getting started should start at the same place, and cover the same detail as the EC2 bootstrap guide.
+
+* Clear description of metadiscovery
+* make sure README files in cookbooks aren’t wildly inaccurate
+* Carry out setup directions, ensure they work:
+ - cluster_chef if you’re using our homebase
+ - cluster_chef if you’re using opscode’s homebase
+* local vagrant environment
+* hadoop cluster bootstrapping
+
+## Piddly Shit
+
+* standardize the `zabbix` cookbook (no more /opt, etc -- more in the TODO)
+* volumes don't deep merge -- eg you have to mount_ephemerals in the facet if you modify htem
+* kill_old_service should disable services (may be leaving /etc/rc.d cruft).
+* kill old service doesn't go the first time. why?
+* chef client/server cookbook: set chef user UID / GID; client can set log directory
+* apt has a dashboard at http://{hostname}:3142/report
+* can use knife ssh as me@ or as ubuntu@
+* knife command to set/remove permanent on a node + disableApiTermination on box. knife cluster kill refuses to delete nodes with permanent set. knife cluster sync sets permanent on if permanent(true), removes if permanent(false), ignores if permanent nil or unset.
+* style-guide alignment (prefix_root becomes prefix)
+
+## Really Want
+
+* unify the hashlike underpinning to be same across silverware & cluster_chef. Make sure we love (or accept) all the differences between it and Gorrillib’s, and between it and Chef’s.
+* Keys are transmitted in databags, using a helper, and not in node attributes
+* easy to create a dummy node (load balancer, external resource, etc)
+* components can have arbitrary attributes (kinda. they take an `:info` param, behavior which may change later)
+* All cookbooks have nice detailed announcements
+* full roll out of log_integration, monitoring
+* Git deploy abstraction similar to `install_from`
+
+## Cookbook checklist:
+* Validate all the cookbooks against checklist -- see notes/README-checklist.md

+## Things that are probably straightforward to fix as soon as we know how
+
+* announcements should probably be published very early, but they need to know lots about the machine YUK
+* split between clusters / roles / integration cookbooks
+* inheritance of clusters
+
+## Things We Hate But Might Have to Continue Hating
+
+* Cluster refactor -- clusters / stacks / components, not clusters / roles / cookbooks
+* move cluster discovery to cloud class.
+* Server#normalize! doesn’t imprint object (ie. server attributes poke through to the facet & cluster, rather than being *set* on the object)
+* The fact you can only see one cluster at a time is stupid.
+* security group pairing is sucky.
+* ubuntu home drive bullshit
+* Finer-grained security group control (eg nfs server only opens a couple ports, not all)
+* nfs recipe uses discovery right (thus allowing more than one NFS share to exist in the universe)
+* roles UGGGHHHHAERWSDFKHSBLAH
+
+## Ponies!
+* sync cookbooks up/down to `infochimps-cookbooks/` 
+  - note: infochimps-cookbooks the org will be dereferenced in favor of ironfan-lib the single repo; it's unclear which pull requesters will prefer. We will do at least one push so that names and URLs are current, and we're not removing anything, but infochimps-cookbooks has an unclear future.
+* foodcritic compatibility
+* build out cookbook munger, make it less spike-y
+* spot pricing
+* rackspace compatibility
+* cookbook munger reads comments in attributes file to populate metadata.rb
+* `gem install ironfan; ironfan install` checks everything out
