In the past, Softserve[1] machines would be a clean Centos 7 image. Now, we have an image with all the dependencies installed and *almost* setup to run regressions. It just needs a few steps run on them and we have a simplified playbook that will setup *just* those steps. This brings down the time from around 30 mins to setup a machine to less than 5 mins. The instructions[2] are on the softserve wiki for now, but will move to the site itself in the future.

This is neat! Good to see the continuing work on the softserve system.
