We can use Docker with vagrant too. But i don't know too much about
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 ;)
