Use a different repository for Salt

I was wondering if it is possible to use a custom repository for Salt. I have found a bug with Salt and wanted to see if a quick fix was possible. It would be easiest for me to test if I could just use it in my normal Vagrant setup.

What I would like to do is fork the Salt repo, make my fix, and have Vagrant retrieve Salt from my fork. Is that possible?

This should be possible. Vagrant surfaces salt bootstrap install options. Taking a look at the salt bootstrap script, it looks like you can pass a -g option to specify a git url, and a git ref.

Thank you so much @soapy1. That worked perfectly and I was able to use my own fork. :grin:
