The official distribution is the RPM/DEB/binary distribution.  The
ruby-vagrant package is different - I don't believe it is based on
vagrant-installers.  If we wanted to not use the RPMs (which are very
self-contained) but still have a low-maintenance way of packaging this, we
could start here: https://github.com/mitchellh/vagrant-installers
