This page serves as a getting started guide for community members interested in introducing themselves to the OpenStack Chef cookbooks and community.


  • The OpenStack + Chef community leverages the main openstack-discuss mailing list with the tag of [chef] in the subject line.
  • There is an #openstack-chef channel on freenode.net. Come hang out with us and collaborate there.
  • We have a maintainers list located here. Please don't hesitate to reach out.

Bug Tracking

We track bugs and feature requests using a single Launchpad project called OpenStack + Chef. You can see the list of open bugs or file a new bug.

Blueprints / Feature Tracking

For major feature enhancements and planning you can use Launchpad's Blueprints system for the OpenStack + Chef project on Launchpad. You can create a new blueprint that may be targeted to a milestone and tracked appropriately. The process for blueprint content reviews is documented here: https://opendev.org/openstack/openstack-chef-specs
