Hi Karthik,

Generally what projects do in ci.centos.org is to use Jenkins as the
orchestrator, and do all the heavy lifting on the 'provisioned' machine,
including cloning the test harness itself.

So in your example you could do something like:

vagrant ssh -c "git clone <url_of_your_test_suite>; ./runtests.sh"

That would pull down a copy of the t_functional suite into your fresh
vagrant box.
