I've finished building the base OS.
Anyone has any suggestions were can we host a 450MB file ? Github
doesn't look doable to me. Maybe I've missed some way of hosting files
on Github without actually putting them in a repository.
It needs to be world accessible via http.
When each of us will start vagrant for the first time it will need to
download this file.
