-= Description
-Installs Homebrew and acts as the native package provider for Mac OS X using
-Homebrew to install packages. See:
+Sadly I no longer use chef in my day-to-day work (the ops team at the last company
+I worked for chose Puppet and life is too short to keep several configuration
+management syntaxes/APIs in my head!) so this cookbook has fallen into disrepair.
+It is now being maintained by the Opscode team. See their fork here:
-for additional background.
-= Requirements
-== Prerequisites
-In order for this recipe to work, you will have to already own
-<tt>/usr/local</tt>. This is outside the scope of the cookbook because it's
-anticipated that you'll run the cookbook as your own user, not root and you'd
-have to be root to take ownership of the directory. Easiest way to get started:
- sudo chown -R `whoami`:staff /usr/local
-Bear in mind that this will take ownership of the entire folder and its
-contents, so if you've already got stuff in there (eg MySQL owned by a +mysql+
-user) you'll need to be a touch more careful.
-== Platform
-This is only going to work on platforms that Homebrew supports which is, I
-think, just Mac OS X. This cookbook has been tested on Mac OS X 10.6.6 with the
-latest version of Homebrew (as of Mon 24 Jan 2011 at any rate!).
-== Cookbooks
-Shouldn't require any other cookbooks, though its operation may be greatly
-enhanced by another cookbook I'm brewing that manages launchd. ;-)
-= Resources and Providers
-This cookbook provides a package provider called +homebrew_package+ which will
-install/remove packages using Homebrew. This becomes the default provider for
-+package+ if your platform is Mac OS X.
-= Attributes
-= Usage
-Just make sure that this cookbook is selected before you start installing
-packages. You can add:
- include_recipe 'homebrew'
-to all your recipes that install packages, or you can just make sure it's on
-the run list somewhere early on. The cookbook itself ensures that Homebrew is
-installed and up to date.
