Or is there just no one using chef?

I guess so, people just wanted to keep their sanity and moved on
to something else...

FWIW, about 3-4 years ago when I looked into configuration
management tools, puppet had considerably better support for
openSUSE so I stuck with that. That, and it being available in the
main distribution would IMO go a long way towards people choosing
puppet instead of chef.

I fully agree with the both of you, I would not have chosen chef
myself. Gosh, ruby style syntax when one can have YAML? ;-)

(Nothing against ruby as a programming language, it might have it's
advantages there)

Today we would also get salt and ansible in the mix, but that's
what the situation was back then.

Agreed.

If noone else steps up, I would be willing to spend a little time on
getting things in shape in systemsmanagement:chef:* and move my
home-packages there...
