comment Using DD for disk cloning
@Tozz: You can improve the compressibility of a filesystem image by filling the filesystem with a file filled with 0's, syncing it to disk, then deleting it. dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M of=/balloon; sync; rm /balloon (Modulo extra intelligence in the filesystem layer.)

comment Using DD for disk cloning
I should also note that adding 'bs=1M' to the dd command will usually greatly improve speed.

comment How to copy a large number of files quickly between two servers
@user11749: There are two -f options in that command, both of which are required. Are you talking about passing -f to ssh to have it go to the background?

comment Is it possible install one instance of Trac for multiple independent projects?
You can pass all the required arguments to trac-admin. So yes, a simple wrapper will let you create new trac instances from a web page. Might look at coderesort.com as well; one of the other Trac devs runs that.
