Hey duders,

Just in case you forgot, 10.16.4 never got any omnibus love -- which means standard knife bootstraps with it are pretty grumpy.
Can you share some details? If the problem is that the bootstrap is looking for version 10.16.4 of the omnibus package, you can workaround using the `--bootstrap-version` option.


Of course you should be ignoring me and enjoying your holidays with your family, because computers are a silly thing to fret about in comparison. I'm just dropping this note for when you all get back from that.
Yep, there were some issues with our magical omnibus build cluster and people had to head out before they could be addressed.

For those of you playing the home game that can't wait, if you need to deal with moneta+chef and need knife bootstrap this instant, open up a Gemfile and throw this in there:

gem 'moneta', '~> 0.6.0'
gem 'chef', '10.16.2'

then run `bundle update` and just prefix all `knife` invocations with `bundle exec knife`. the standard bootstrap (at least for debuntu) comes from .deb packages and is therefore immune to the moneta problem... sort of.
I think this will have the same effect as the `--bootstrap-version` option, since it defaults to the version of Chef you have. "10.16.2" will definitely work here, I think "latest" should also do the trick.

Have a happy holidays,
