I should have been more accurate, instead of saying :
"having official Ubuntu packages for Chef might help this" I should have said,
"having official Ubuntu packages for the current release of Chef might
help this"

The client is supported across Ubuntu releases, but Chef server seems
only supported[1], at the time of writing, on Ubuntu Lucid, Debian sid
and squeeze.

Anyway, Chef is developing rapidly, currently at version 0.9.8, and it
may be too soon to expect Ubuntu-cloud to track the current release,
currently the Ubuntu ppa above has Chef 0.7.x for lucid and Chef 0.8.x
for maverick.

Best wishes
