Hi Jay,

Could you defined "permanent build" ?
I am not sure if this fits your requirement, but jenkins has a link to
the latest successful build (ex:

We do not store convenient artifacts of VMs since no one has asked about
it before.
So ideally, known well tested working disk images would be the ones from
Apache Bigtop releases. But right now, there is not much testing of our
VMs. But any help on that front would be welcome!

Note also that I added that VM more as a base VM for an Apache Hadoop
cloud image than a developer VM. That's why there is not much in it as
well as no desktop pre-configured.
So depending on your needs, we may want to add a new VM or enhance the
current one (also, boxgrinder enables inheritance between appliances).

Also Boxgrinder is apparently not being maintained anymore. So we may
want to look into other VM builders (Oz, etc.)
