Subject Re: [MERGE] virtual network appliance manager refactorring
Date Mon, 03 Nov 2014 10:17:20 GMT
I have posted a reference pull request
<https://github.com/apache/cloudstack/pull/33> with the current work in
progress using packer to build system virtual machines as well as
generating vagrant boxes for testing. As mentioned in the pull request
comment :This is "a work in progress" and posted for review and comment.
