Just a short notice to confirm that we (I'm Stéphane's supervisor) we
able to create a working Vagrant box using the development branch of
bootstrap-vz to build a Jessie image on an amd64 jessie host.

The box is reused as a base box to add postgresql, apache, php, etc.

It even works alright on Windows 7 ;-)

As both the host and target are jessie, the dkms issue doesn't pop up,
but this is indeed problematic when host and target kernels mismatch,

Keep up the good work.
