Jeremiah Snapp’s excellent guide to cookbook management with Librarian


Hey, thanks for mentioning my cookbook management guide. And thanks to Jay who's done such a great job with Librarian.

About the "I don't do it Jay's way", I was just trying to give an explanation for why I was deviating from his recommendations. :)

I still plan to make some revisions to my guide later this week based on conversations in the mailing list.
