I think that even better then an actual VirtualBox image would be to have
repeatable, automated steps to create (customized, even) images using
something like http://vagrantup.com/ (or whatever people are most familiar with).
A downside of distributing actual images, beside sheer size, is that updating
& regenerating them for different purposes becomes a chore. On the other hand,
a VirtualBox image build script would be a lot more interesting, as it could be
customized for different purposes - a 'just-enough-to-build' variant, a
jdk8/6/7u/jigsaw/lamdba variant, etc.
