Chef cookbook dependencies of dependencies

view story

http://serverfault.com – This might be a simple question - I am trying to install a cookbook (gitlab) I cloned the cookbook into a folder on my local drive and ran knife cookbook upload gitlab. Immediately it threw an error: Cookbook gitlab depends on cookbook postgresql version >= 0.0.0 So I ran knife cookbook site download postgresql It had some dependencies, which had further dependencies, and now I'm at the point where I am installing cookbooks I know I won't need (dmg, windows, etc.) I was under the impression that this stuff automatically resolved itself like aptitude or yum. Did I miss some cruci (HowTos)
