When writing code for installing apps in devops tools its often userful to have single repository of code that applies to some specific application,

   "run_list": [
      "recipe[base]",
      "recipe[mysql::server]",
      "recipe[mysql::client]","
   ],

which will allow you to use an include_tasks statement to prevent the spamming of the skipped tasks messages, but also not have to individually tag tasks that are included.
