[scl.org] Announcing release for Vagrant 1.7.4 on CentOS Linux 7 x86_64 SCL



I am pleased to announce the immediate availability of Vagrant 1.7.4 on CentOS Linux 7 x86_64, delivered via a Software Collection (SCL) built by the SCLo Special Interest Group (https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/SCLo).

QuickStart
----------
You can get started in three easy steps:
  $ sudo yum install centos-release-scl
  $ sudo yum install sclo-vagrant1
  $ scl enable sclo-vagrant1 bash

At this point you should be able to use vagrant just as a normal
application. An example work-flow might be:
  $ vagrant init centos/7
  $ vagrant up
  $ vagrant ssh

In order to view the individual components included in this
collection, including additional vagrant plugins, you can run :
  $ sudo yum list sclo-vagrant\*

About Software Collections
--------------------------
Software Collections give you the power to build, install, and use multiple versions of software on the same system, without affecting system-wide installed packages. Each collection is delivered as a group of RPMs, with the grouping being done using the name of the collection as a prefix of all packages that are part of the software collection.

The collection sclo-vagrant1 delivers a Vagrant tool in version 1.x that allows to create and configure virtual development environments. Some of the most common plugins are also included in the collection as RPMs.

The sclo-vagrant1 collection relies on the following additional collections which will also be installed: rh-ruby22, rh-ror41

For more on the Vagrant tool and other plugins, see https://www.vagrantup.com.

The SCLo SIG in CentOS
----------------------
The Software Collections SIG group is an open community group co-ordinating the development of the SCL technology, and helping curate a reference set of collections. In addition to the Vagrant collection being released here, we also build and deliver databases, web servers, and language stacks including multiple versions of PostgreSQL, MariaDB, Apache HTTP Server, Ruby, NodeJS, Python and others.

Software Collections SIG release was announced at https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-announce/2015-October/021446.html

You can learn more about Software Collections concepts at: http://softwarecollections.org/ You can find information on the SIG at https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/SCLo ; this includes howto get involved and help with the effort.

We meet every Wednesday at 16:00 UTC in #centos-devel (ref: https://www.centos.org/community/calendar), for an informal open forum open to anyone who might have comments, concerns or wants to get started with SCL's in CentOS.

Enjoy!
