Looks like a bug considering it worked before and now it does not. Can you file an issue on Github. If you have reproducible test case, that would be awesome.

Before I raise an issue on this I wanted to check to see if what I'm seeing is accurate.

As of today we are seeing several CI jobs failing for cookbooks with errors like this:

         undefined method `a_method_in_my_library' for LWRP resource my_lwrp from cookbook my_cookbook

Reading through https://www.chef.io/blog/2015/06/24/chef-client-12-4-0-released/ (the section titled "LWRPs are no longer automatically placed in the Chef::Resource namespace") seems to be the key info. This implies it should be nothing more than a deprecation, however it seems to be causing an actual failure. Here is a snippet of what we are doing:

::Chef::Resource::MyLwrp.send(:include, ::My::Module)
my_lwrp 'blah' do
  resource_file a_method_in_my_library

This works fine on 12.3.0 and only started failing as of 12.4.0. This feels like a pretty common pattern and I think the deprecation message is fine, but feels like this should continue to work in 12.4.0?
