Hi all,

I'm testing out a new way of installing The DataTank on testing machines 
for development purposes: vagrant. The branch can be found here:


Now the workflow to set up a new machine should be the following:
  * install vagrant if you didn't already
  * git clone git at github.com:tdt/core.git
  * git checkout feature-vagrant # (for now)
  * # edit your /etc/hosts and add this line: tdt.dev
  * vagrant up

If you now direct your browser to http://tdt.dev, you will see the 
landing page of The DataTank. Using the credentials admin admin you will 
be able to log in at http://tdt.dev/api/admin.

The upside should be that the you can now make changes to the PHP code, 
execute the tests and commit changes back to the repository without any 
hassle. Open to any kind of feedback you may have!

Kind regards,
