To do this properly, we have conflicting dependencies on the mac agents that will need to be resolved. In particular, our current maven cookbook depends on ark < 1, while any of the needed packer cookbooks depend on ark > 1.

Currently, packer is not in the runlist. I was able to hackily upgrade packer to 1.0.0 by uploading chef-packer-0.6.0 and running chef piecemeal: chef-client -o "recipe[packer]" -j [json] with the following json:

but leaving this open until we can properly get all our cookbooks to play nicely.
