Re: [MirageOS-devel] Question about pioneer projects

Great! I've left mapping a shared drive up to the users of the box, as it will vary by use-case. Also, I've tried to make it possible that one can customise the Vagrantfile to allow a different private subnet within virtualbox - but both these are untested / undocumented so far. Otherwise, I've updated the README onÂhttps://github.com/mattgray/mirage-xen-virtualbox with instructions on how to build and use.

Awesome! I shall ditch my stalled attempt and use yours then :)
The `Vagrantfile` in the mirage-vagrant-vms directory should expose a
host-shared directory via NFS if that's any use.
