On Boto and Chef Community Cookbooks

Today I learned:

  1. It is time to let the old Boto retire; it would not let me access the attached managed policies of an IAM role. Boto3 supports this.
  2. Chef community cookbooks that are bundled with a project have a tendency to not work if left alone for a while—and upgrading them can get messy due to the way dependencies are handled. Stick to the cookbooks with no or simple dependency graphs or just roll your own solution.
