Hi, great work on Vaprobash. The problem I'm currently facing is that if I provision a machine and a developer joins the project down the road, Vaprobash gets the most recent versions of all software (with a few exceptions). This isn't ideal as devs envs than can be ahead of production versions. Is there any way to specify versions for web servers, dbs, Ruby & node.js etc. from a provisioning perspective? Thanks.

Hey Niall!

Vapro stays on the edge right now, unless you choose the few instances
where you can install certain versions of things (php<5.5 and MySQL 5.5 vs
5.6 being 2 examples).

That's actually a 'feature' of Vapro in my mind. I want devs to jump in and
have an easy time in Vagrant before learning more and moving onto to
something better.

I think in your case you'd want something with more provisioning power. I
like Ansible because of it's mix of ease and power (in fact a version of
Vapro which uses Ansible over bash would be pretty nice project also, altho
in my spare time I've been playing with Docker a lot).

Hope that's not too disappointing! Vapro was always meant to be as simple
as possible (I think right now it's still teetering on too complex!)
