[Koha] Virtual Koha

We have a test Koha server here that's partly like you describe. Our
base metal is a Sun Fire X4100 server running Solaris 10 and VirtualBox,
then we installed Koha on Debian in a VM. All that was fairly easy to
setup, but I think one of the things with a distributable VM is keeping
it up-to-date. Koha is a rapidly developing ILS, and a VM project would
require some frequent attention. Several months ago I think we also had
Koha on Debian in a VBox VM, on top of a Debian host.

OpenSuse, one of my go-to distros, actually has a good build service if
someone was inclined to use that.


We're kinda busy with a couple of project here so I probably couldn't
devote a lot of time to such a project at the moment, but I think it
would be a good project and well worth doing.
