Earlier this week I released version 0.9.0 of my xinetd cookbook. This cookbook provides:
- An LWRP for managing xinetd services,
- Attribute driven configuration of xinetd.conf, and
- a recipe for enabling the internal xinetd-provided services (chargen, daytime, discard, echo, time, and tcpmux-server).
This cookbook is not yet on the Opscode Community site as I am working with the maintainer of the currently uploaded xinetd cookbook to ensure we don’t break anyone using the existing cookbook.
For more details about this cookbook, please see the README. If you are interested in contributing to this cookbook, pull requests are accepted on Github.
