Capistrano makes deployment a snap. Chef takes the pain out of managing server dependencies. Roundsman from Iain Hecker aims to combine the best from both:

# config/deploy.rb

before "deploy:update_code" do
  roundsman.run_list "recipe[main]"
end

after "deploy:create_symlink" do
  roundsman.run_list "recipe[main::webserver]"
end

Check out the README for installation and usage. Also check out Episode 0.3.8 on Chef and DevOps if you missed it.
