That's huge. Is there any way you can simply script what you did to
create this image, and share that, so somebody could execute it from
an internet-connected clean-install of a virtual machine? (something
like a kickstart file, or a cloudinit script?... or perhaps a single
RPM and/or DEB that grabs all the right stuff and turns a vanilla OS
install into an Accumulo system?).
