WordPress Meta Environment

Setting up local development environments to contribute to the Meta sites can be an obstacle for those without access to the private subversion repositories or a sandbox, especially at a meetup or WordCamp contributor day, where time is limited.

We’ve talked a bit before about making this easier by creating a Vagrant configuration, so I put together a prototype based on Varying Vagrant Vagrants, with WordCamp.org as the first site. The sample data needs a little love, but other than that I think it works pretty well.

I’ll test it out with some people this weekend at WordCamp Seattle. If anyone on the team wants to add other sites or make any changes, just let me know and I’ll add you to the repo.
