My apologies; the links on that were wrong. Big copy/paste error on my
part; not a good start!

The main package, rubygem-chef is at, and the other
packages are linked off of there.

A little bit about myself:  I'm a network administrator who has been
using CentOS extensively for around 5 years, and Chef for about 3
years.  As part of this, I've done a fair amount of packaging of
various software for our internal repository using mock and the EPEL
packaging guidelines.  A large part of my early packaging efforts
involved packaging assorted Ruby gems.

Recently, I've been working with opscode to get Chef packaged up for
Fedora (and EPEL, in the future).  There was a previous abortive
attempt to get Chef into Fedora but the volunteer involved at the time
had other requirements on his time.  I'm looking to maintain this
package (and its requirements) on a long-term basis, since there is a
fair bit of demand to have Chef be a bit more widely available.

Please let me know if you have any further questions, or if you have
any suggestions on proceeding from here.
