@max-k Thanks for the tip. I didn't know about this and can't find documentation for it.

I just ran through builds with and without !strip for chef-dk and chef-workstation. For both of them it saves a small amount of time but the resulting package is 20 MB larger, and I think the size is more important so I'm going to keep the stripping step.

Could you add the following line to your package ?

options=( !strip )

It will drastically reduce build time without changing anything.

Thank you.

Package updated, let me know if you run into any issues.

Maximka commented on 2017-07-17 13:22

yes, it still maintained, feel free to help

wolf commented on 2017-07-17 12:26

Is this still maintained package? If not, I would like to take over.

@Maximka I jumped ship to ansible, time for someone new to step up and maintain this.

Until its officially out on the webpage I don't update guys.

1.22 is still the latest one listed as released.

Here is a diff for upgrading to 1.1.16 that I used recently, it also addresses (hopefully correctly) the issue with broken symlinks. YMMV, correct as necessary... N.B. I used the deb from 14.04 from the chef downloads site as I was about to create an ubuntu vagrant image using 14.04... otherwise I have no reason to use that particular deb. I assume they are the same, but maybe they aren't, I didn't look.
