Re: building (official) debian images for atlas (formerly vagrantcloud)
Tiago, Anders, Olivier
Thank you for your feedback!
Zitat von Tiago Ilieve <firstname.lastname@example.org>:
- As this is a box that's intended to be shared with the world, would
be nice if it had "http://http.debian.net/debian/" as its default
- The root partition could be a bit more generous than 2GiB, as the
virtual disk will grow with usage. That's not a rule, but I've seen
some Vagrant boxes using 40-80GiB for this.
I guess it depends on what your do with the VM afterwards...
Wouldn't 20GiB be sufficient? Anyway, I set it to 5GiB for further testing.
What do others say about this?
I agree that having a box close to a vanilla debian is more important
than the final box size.
- Do you really think that the `01_nodoc` script is needed? I would
understand if that was an image meant to be used in a non-interactive
environment, but that's not the most common use case for Vagrant.
- Somewhat related to the last one, but maybe the packages' option
"install_standard" could be used to make the box a little bit more
Set install_standard: true and removed the nodoc script.
As proposed by Anders, we'd best put it in some official manifest
folder in bootstrap-vz.
Once this has reached a usable beta status, I'll send him a patch to
include the files.
Also, do you mind putting this manifest on a Git (possible GitHub)
repository? This will make easier to look at its current state and
change history, propose changes, etc.
Meanwhile, I put them up here:
As to the documentation Olivier alluded to:
What should it comprise and what format would be preferred?
I uploaded 2 new boxes to test:
Further testing and feedback is very welcome.
