+1 for building official solutions on top of James's work where practical.

While I'm avoiding that for the Kubernetes bootstrapping I'm currently looking at, that's a combination of the way I personally learn things and the fact I'm hoping to eventually get it to a point where it's suitable for linking from the upstream k8s docs (so the fewer dependencies the better).

As I go though, I'm also discovering how many of Vagrant's rough edges OMV helps to handle, so I suggest Project Atomic itself should be more opinionated on ways of working effectively with Vagrant :)
