  • Tupperware - apps in Docker/Vagrant, great for keeping an unpolluted development environment, testing patches and enabling new contributors to join the effort. Vagrant is used as a quick and easy way to provision the docker apps and make the setup truly plug n' play. The current setup only has a single Vagrantfile which launches BuildAPI and BuildBot, with their dependency apps RabbitMQ and MySQL.
