+1 for adding vagrant support to our offering. Vagrant is very popular with web developers though docker has taken some of their steam recently. It’s important to the modernization of Eclipse that we integrate the workflows developers are doing with Vagrant
into the Eclipse environment.
As always, I’ll leave it up to the legal minds to decide how to make that happen and what magic words to use, as long as they allow a great experience for our users.
BTW, I don’t think we gain anything by supporting alternatives. Vagrant is by far the leader there.
I've asked these questions, in the CQ, before deciding if this can be classified as an "exempt pre-req".

might want to use instead? If so, I just wanted to be sure there was at least
some potential to be open or pluggable, even if in future.
I just spent 30 seconds looking, but this post caught my eye:

I understand big picture first.
