So it's just still a matter of access?  Expanding a lv and growing a fs should
be a matter of minutes - although making the expanded lv known to the vm
without a reboot might be an issue.

Usually you would just pull the disk and put in a new one - without any
downtime.  At least the rebuild should run in background.  Anyone recall why it
had to run in foreground with everying offline the last time?

We moved redmine to a non-osgeo machine.  The VM now is only hosting the
website with documentation and downloads.  It's also behind cloudflare.  But
disk space is also an issue there too.

Building of website and documentation has been moved of the VM and is rsynced
back from another non-osgeo machine to the VM.
