I am all for vagrant or docker for my apps, I do think it would make
easier for new contributors to get started.
I know I've been meaning to get faitout on docker so that one could run a
instance of faitout, but still haven't done it.
On the docker vs vagrant, I have no idea, I must confess I lack knowledge
both (played w/ docker once over a year ago, never with vagrant).
We can use Docker with vagrant too. But i don't know too much about Docker,
so in my use of Vagrant, i pretty much have stuck with using libvirt with
to do what I need to do.
I have a few Vagrant setups working now too, and added a pagure repo with
instructions as well:
So far, I have ones for fedora-hubs, bodhi and a quick one for getting a
test instance up and running. I also should note that I am not a sysadmin,
so i might
be doing some of the steps in the provisioning a bit weird, so feel free to
test these out
and submit a PR or three ;)
