Hello Allan,

thanks for this, I didn't knew vagrant (only chef). It seems very
interesting, and the use that you are making of chef is also very
interesting, quite intriguing. I'm wondering where we could add a link
in our documentation so that people needing it will find it. Maybe
? You know better the feeling of being a user seeking some info on
SimGrid than I do. Where should I add the link, from your point of view?

Thanks again for this,

Once you understand how to write a program get someone else to write it.
