Bug#876464: cloud.debian.org: vagrant home directory has no files from /etc/skel
> Vagrant base box debian/stretch64 (and debian/jessie64) includes a home
> directory /home/vagrant containing only the .ssh directory: none of
> .profile and .bash_logout are present (i.e. files normally copied from
> /etc/skel). This makes the Vagrant user behaviour slightly different than
> expected, and makes e.g. custom .bashrc not run without adding a .profile.
> The included patch for debian-vm-templates fixes it by having useradd
> make the
> home directory, using the default skeleton directory files.
thanks for you fix, I've applied it in the git repo, and the next build
round of Vagrant boxes will include it
