Provide Vagrant with the KVM plugin.


Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 20
  • Last updated: 2013-07-10
  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Detailed Description

Vagrant is an automation tool used to manage development environments using virtualization and configuration management tools. It allows developers and teams to work on their projects and test them in an environment similar to production. Historically, Vagrant had a dependency on VirtualBox, but the newer versions have a plugin system allowing it to work with other virtualization technologies, including KVM.

Benefit to Fedora

Vagrant is widely used by development teams and is also used to provide pre-built environments by a lot of open-source projects. It would be a good addition to the Fedora development toolchain. More generally, Vagrant is currently provided as a self-contained Ruby environment in /opt and a properly packaged Vagrant would be better integrated to Linux.


  • Proposal owners:

There's still some work to be done on the vagrant-kvm plugin to make it work seamlessly, eg. with SELinux and Firewalld, but it should be simple enough. Most of the work is about packaging Vagrant and its dependencies as rubygems RPMs and ensuring integration with the Fedora Ruby environment.
