# Knife Configuration File.
#
# This is a Ruby DSL to set configuration parameters for Knife's
# general options. The default location for this file is
# ~/.chef/knife.rb. If multiple Chef repositories are used,
# per-repository configuration files can be created. A per repository
# configuration file must be .chef/knife.rb in the base directory of
# the Chef repository. For example,
#
# ~/Development/chef-repo/.chef/knife.rb
