Well, we're a few days after Groundhog Day, but hey, Punxsutawney Phil
won't know[0].

Over the last few months, we've made a lot of progress released a lot
of new cookbooks. Thank you to everyone who has submitted a patch
fixing a bug, whether in code or documentation. You make Chef and
these cookbooks, awesome. I'm sorry for the delay in several of these.
I think we've taken care of most of the older tickets.

As of this email, we're down to 1 "resolved and merged" ticket that
hasn't been released to the community site (COOK-627), and only 5
"resolved and untriaged" tickets, three of which are pending COOK-634
(application cookbook LWRP). The other two are pending review or
further investigation per Bryan's triage email for this week. We are
also down to 64 pull requests, and I'd like to thank Paul Morton for
his awesome assistance in following up with pull requests, linking
tickets (or creating them) and helping people through the CLA process.

As most of you are probably aware, we're planning to split the
opscode/cookbooks repository into individual repositories per
cookbook. A commit last week contained a bulk of the finishing touches
for the individual cookbooks:

- remove the "changes" sections from README.md
- create CHANGELOG.md with the "changes" section

This is a priority and we're actively working on moving it forward. I
don't have an ETA when it will be done, but you'll see activity on
GitHub, for sure!

The list of cookbook releases is a new experiment, it is markdown
format and should render HTML just fine (though most mail clients
don't do that).
