That option is possible, I'll need to verify we have enough disk space
1st and make the request to OSUOSL. Putting a ticket into trac.osgeo.org
would be good to keep track of the progress.

We have 2 choices, a blank or a clone. A clone might take a few minutes
of downtime (10 minutes I think). Clone would obviously save time long term.
