comment Chef: create a directory for a template if it doesn't already exist
Yeah - me too. It just doesn't feel very Chef-y either having to specify each level or leave it all up to defaults.

comment Prevent chef recipe from executing previously executed action?
I'm using a Chef node attribute to store whether the recipe has been executed or not. The value of the attribute is stored on the Chef server and can be queried (or modified) using knife.

comment unable to bootstrap ec2 ubuntu instance
You most likely need to create a new key for the ap region as key pairs, like AMIs, are not shared across regions.

comment unable to bootstrap ec2 ubuntu instance
Did you use -image or --image? The error is coming from knife and not Amazon.

comment Cloning and deploying existing Linux builds via Chef, Puppet, etc
+1 for the answer pointing to blueprint. The difference between the two tools is that Chef takes a blank server and describes how to make it into what you want, and blueprint takes what you already have and figures out how to build it.
