Trellis not using roots Vagrant box anymore?

More of a curiosity question than anything. I cloned the latest version of Trellis, and I notice that the box that Vagrant uses is back to the standard trusty box and not the custom roots one that’s been used for a long while? Is this planned? I thought the roots box existed because it had some stuff already provisioned which made provisioning a new dev environment quicker. Just curious.

It did make provisioning a new dev environment quicker but at the cost of flexibility and numerous edgecases. We also had to update and maintain the box. Everything should be more predictable now.
