but the vagrant script and the VirtualBox-image need not to contain a
git checkout and a full debug build. The image should contain only a
clean environment with the necessary development tools.

I think the download of git checkout and creating a first LibreOffice
buildout (full debug) should be done live later.

If that would be part of the VirtualBox-image that would be true. But
that is not my intention.
