Bug Description

The 0.8.16 release of Chef currently in Precise is very old and unsupported. It should be removed from the repository and not included in the Precise (12.04) release. Praveen Arimbrathodiyil has been working on getting a more recent release into Debian but it will not be ready in time for Precise.

Instructions for installing the latest version of Ohai from the external Opscode apt repository are available on the Opscode wiki:

Please resolve this first; since that's just one binary package from a source package that builds many others, the source package needs to be changed.

Unsubscribing sponsors from the bug report as the only piece that required sponsoring has been already uploaded.
