Deprecation: epic_fail (CHEF-24)

The original name for the ignore_failure property in resources was epic_fail. Our documentation has not referred to epic_fail for years and out of the 3500 cookbooks on the Supermarket only one uses epic_fail. In Chef Infra Client 14 we will remove the epic_fail property entirely.

The Cookstyle cop ChefDeprecations/EpicFail has been introduced to detect and autocorrect this deprecation.


Replace any usage of epic_fail with ignore_failure.
