Vagrant packages for fedora revisited

I have updated my vagrant packages for fedora with vagrant-1.0.6, and adding a yum repo with packages for fedora 18. The packages missing from fedora are posted for package review.

The yum repo has prebuilt packages for f17 and f18, and is available here:

It depends on the following packages missing from fedora 18:

rubygem-log4r >= 1.1.9, < 2.0.0
Fix: Build new package
Package review request: bz #905240

rubygem-childprocess >=0.3.1 < 0.4.0 (0.3.6 in rawhide)
Fix: Grab 0.3.6 package from rawhide

rubygem-json >= 1.5.1, < 1.6.0 (1.6.5 in f18, 1.9.1 in rawhide)
Fix: Build rubygem-json15, roughly based on current package.
Package review request: #bz 905389

rubygem-net-ssh >= 2.2.2, < 2.3.0 (2.2.1 in rawhide)
Fix: Build 2.2.2 package based on current package.
Update request: bz #905393
