Chef cookbook for root installation?

Hi,
many of us are using VM and contextualization takes a bit of time.
Has anyone experimented with chef from opscode to streamline the installation of root?

They have a loot of cookbooks doing different things but I could not find anything related to CERN ROOT (or Geant4).

I’d be willing to collaborate if anyone is interested in pursuing this topic
