My development logbook

Partial Chef Template

My story

I want to add a line to the /etc/apache2/envvars. However I did not install this file using a cookbook. I installed it by package apach2. So partial template does not work for me.

I usds FileEdit instead

Having look through the apache2 cookbook, I start to feel chef cookbook replicates a lot of what a dpkg is currently doing. Does it mean the downstream maintainer have to keep the cookbook up to date with various package management systems on every other platform?
