Deprecation: Easy Install Resource (CHEF-6)

The Python community recommends that users prefer pip rather than easy_install to install python packages.

The easy_install resource was deprecated in Chef Infra Client 12.10, and will be removed in Chef Infra Client 13.

The Cookstyle cop ChefDeprecations/EasyInstallResource has been introduced to detect this deprecation.


There is no built-in replacement for easy_install in Chef Infra Client at this time.
