For patch that are complex to test in local dev env like ones with encoding issues that could be great to have a clean test/staging/beta environment with a partial and safe db+patchets copy.
-Should we use puppet? Current config will use nfs, the same as prod one uses. That says same data, and is not what is wanted. So should we create a triage in puppet files for this staging env?
-Create a script that copy like 2000 last that have been run queries with corresponding entries in other db tables.
