I've been getting bitten by the "8 Gig default size" I'm finding in
AWS and other CentOS environments. It's definitely time to bump it up
to 20 Gig.

Hi, I've started doing some testing on the Virtualbox Vagrant box

I've hit a couple of issues:

1) The disk size, at about 8 GB, is too small. Could it be bumped to
50-100 GB? Since the on-disk image will grow dynamically this won't take up
that much space by default but will make it usable for those that need more
storage on the root partition (and I don't want to have to custom mount
additional partitions).
Yes, this can be fixed. I am fine with bumping the disk size to 50GB as it
would be sparse disk. Also there are few tricks you can do with the
Vagrantfile to increase the disk size. But I have not tried them
2) The VirtualBox Guest Additions aren't included. I'm assuming this is
due to a licensing issue and not that they were simply not considered but
wanted to double check.
This part I am not sure. I need to check how we can add "VirtualBox Guest
Additions". yes, we want to fix this.
Otherwise it's been great, and saves me having to build my own custom box,
which is definitely a win.


How do we track these issues? I just dont want to loose track of these.
