Why don't you just take our entire install with a real database dump and
delete what you don't want. I'm sure with a little consultation with the
other projects they probably wouldn't mind.

Then you can have the whole self-contained beast up and running, who
cares about the migration just delete what's non-apache and go from
there. It's MySQL on both ends so probably not that big a deal.

I don't think it's anyone intentionally throwing up roadblocks. I don't
think any of it is intentional when things don't get done it's just
entropy kicking in. And I have been helped many times and I am not
thankless but there still are obstacles but I'm fully willing to discuss
the problem and try to help, take care of things I can myself to
alleviate the burden on infrastructure.
