GSoC weekly report of Deepanshu Gajbhiye for week 8 | Virtual LTSP Server

hello everyone,
This was interesting week. Was working on the project all the time in weekdays.

Here is what I did last week?
  • Implemented vagarant cachier plugin to speed up testing, installation and configuration of ltsp setup[1]
  • Learned how to build vagrant box from scratch blog post and wiki page for the same[2][3]
  • Created a vagrant box and uploaded on vagrant cloud. Also released a second more compack version[4]
  • Fixed ltsp client login issue[5]
  • Added variable to settings.sh configuration file to add vagrant box instead of hardcoding it[6] 
  • Updated docs[7]
  • Added linux mint 19 xfce ltsp box[8]
  • Added testing steps, commands, etc in readme file[9]

Problems I could not solve
  • Have to create packer scripts to automatically create vagrant boxes from iso[10]
Plans for next week
  • Look into internal of docker script then work building a LTSP server container[11]
  • Finsh pending tasks
  • Implement autologin for ltsp clients[12]
  • Work on other tasks if I compelete all these
Same has been updated on my blog post:
