I'm confused regarding the `env_run_lists` in the following `roles/base.rb`. And this didn't http://wiki.opscode.com/display/chef/Roles#Roles-envrunlists make me clear enough.

    name "base"
    description "Base role applied to all nodes."

      "production" => ["recipe[chef-client]"], 
      "staging" => [])
When I run the `knife ec2 server create -E staging ....`, i.e. in the `staging` environment, the node's run_list is blank.

Is this the expected behavior? I was thinking that the `env_run_lists` items would be added up with the items in the above `run_list` items, just like the rails app's `config/database.yml`
