Hi All,

I don't object exactly, but at some point we're really going to have to invest in
de-duplicating Vagrant work.


This most closely overlaps

The kickstart file has a lot of overlap with (but is not exactly the same as) the
Vagrant boxes for Fedora 22 (both Base and Atomic), which are configured here:

Your kickstart configuration could probably be fairly easily written as a Vagrant
provisioner on top of either the Cloud Base or Atomic - or on top of OMV.
I too agree with Colin. If someone wants to make a custom spin of a
box, my vagrant-builder tool does exactly that.
You can use any of the existing Fedora produced base images as a base.

I've been down the roads to/from vagrant for many years now. It would
be my recommendation to build on existing work I've done, or to have
good reasons why not to. I'd rather throw out my work than to
constantly see people re-invent where it's not needed.


Colin, James, Nick,

Sorry for not communicating well about the pupose of the Vagrant box or boxes we are trying to create. So as a first step I have updated the Readme in the github [1] and copied the same below for your reference. I have plans to update the readme after the our current discussion if required ( and you are welcome to send a PR too).

(For hyperlinks to the below projects/keywords, please visit the git repo readme [1] )

- The vagrant box should have all the tools and library required for developing Nulecule based atomicapps. --E.g. We have plan to add tools like atomicapp-builder and Nulecule DEV assistant. Check here for details - This box will be complimentary to CentOS CentOS Community Container Pipeline. -- That would help developers test the Nulecule based atomicapp locally on the vagrant box/boxes before sending the pull request to the CentOS Community Container Pipeline index - The base Vagrant box will contain the developer environments of the atomicapp providers as required e.g. OpenShift. -- We are working on integrating OpenShift Vagrant box for developers with this. - The idea is to create base boxes using distributions build system and then use solution like Oh-my-vagrant for multibox dev environment.
-- As of now we are building the base boxes through CBS.
- This project will inherit from projectatomic/adb-atomic-developer-bundle and will consolidate the work already done.

Note: Project Atomic already provides Vagarant boxes for CentOS and Fedora, but we can not reuse those as we need an environment which can be modified by the developers.

Kindly let me know your thoughts on this. Honestly I am not interested to redo stuff which is already done. Rather I will prefer to consolidate what is already done.
