  Description     : Ruby library for Windows Remote Management

This is a SOAP library that uses the functionality in Windows Remote
Management(WinRM) to call native object in Windows. This includes, but is not
limited to, running batch scripts, powershell scripts and fetching WMI
variables. For more information on WinRM, please visit Microsoft's WinRM site.

As of version 2.0, this gem retains the WinRM name but all powershell calls use
the more modern Powershell Remoting Protocol (PSRP) for initializing runspace
pools as well as creating and processing powershell pipelines.


This package will be maintained in the pkg-azure team.

This package will allow for Windows guests in Vagrant to be managed via winrm.
