Re: Official Debian Images for Vagrant

Are these boxes on http://www.vagrantbox.es/ ?
There is a variety of Debian images there. I do agree we should look at official offerings and make them accessible.
I also think we should look at how packer would help us with images.
I have not tried packer, but when I look at documentation I often see:

"... by launching a source instance" [0]

It seems to always take an image and repack it for your needs.
This is not a "reproductible" way as you do not know how was generated the source image, nor its initial content.
