Also, they now use the expanded run_list

* Accept --env=ENV in addition to --env ENV
Version 1.0.3 November 11, 2011
New features
* #15 (partly): Automatic metadata.json regeneration from metadata.rb
* #63: cleonte contributed deploy_chef support for CentOS/RHEL v6
* #70: Markus added Chef Solo logs (found on /var/log/chef/solo.log)
* Made debug and env proper command line options instead of fake fabric tasks
Bugs fixed:

* #66: Remove sensible data from a node after a configuration run
Version 1.0.2 October 11, 2011

* NEW #60: Don't force to define a password if ssh-config is used
* FIX #62: Cristi fixed rpm installation by using the FrameOS RBEL repository
* FIX: Automatic node data bag created items with the hostname as the name.
That can lead to name collitions. Now FQDN with underscores is used instead
Version 1.0.1 September 28, 2011
* NEW #58: Markus added operation "nodes_with_role", which configures all nodes with
the given role
* FIX #57: Eivind added deploy_chef support for Arch Linux
* FIX: Transform "true" and "false" strings from into real True and False values
happens with default values from metadata.json attributes
Version 1.0.0 September 21, 2011
* NEW #46: Markus implemented node synching using rsync instead of data upload,
substantially speeding up node configuration runs. All cookbooks are now
synchronized, instead of only those needed by the configuration run
* NEW #16: Markus implemented search support for data bags
* NEW #16: Automatically add a "node" data bag, which allows for node search.
It contains everything defined in each nodes/mynode.json file, plus "recipes"
(expanded recipe list), "role" (roles in the run_list),
"roles" (expanded role list), merged attributes (from cookbook, node and roles)
and some Chef automatic attributes
* NEW: Add ipaddress attribute to a node after a configuration run. That way the IP
of that node will be available in the node data bag and thus in the node search
* NEW #53: tow added a patch that allows to override distro detection when installing
Chef Solo
* NEW #55: Markus added a library file that allows to set "chef_environment" in a
role or node attribute
* NEW: Changed "cook" command to "fix", so that we don't collide with the executable
name of an existing package. This was done so that LittleChef can be distro-packaged
* NEW #54: Multi-node execution: a list of nodes to be configured can now be given.
The nodes will be configured preserving order
* NEW: Removed "configure" command. It will be assumed to be the desired action if
no other command is given. Just typing "fix node:X" will configure node X
