I want to enable somebody else on my billing project to work in the exact same notebook environment I am working in.
I realize that the real goal is to have a nice docker image so that you can spin up a new notebook "cluster" using that image and you're ready to go. Same every time. Reproducible.
But in reality, it's often the case that we spend days and days getting a setup just the way we want it (above and beyond the docker image itself... things are constantly changing). And then when somebody else in the group wants to work on the same notebook VM setup, we cannot recreate the magic, and struggle for a long time.
Is it possible to just clone an existing notebook VM exactly as is? (Same billing project.) This kind of thing is possible on the Google Cloud backend, I think...? Is it possible through Terra?
