My first attempt to Export the full EdX example course on Fictus 3.2 was successful, as was Importing it afterwards for editing experience.
However, my attempt to Export using Gingo 2.4 is the latest version which apparently cannot prepare the Export file ready to download in 20 minutes, even when using the fastest virtual server Bittnami can create.
The server instance created was Bitnami Ginkgo 2.4 on Amazon Web Services. Both the size options were created but even the faster r4 version did not speed up Export preparation and enable completion.
My first and only course created, for system testing, comprises one page of text with two low resolution photos. Export preparation is either extremely slow or might even have locked up or an endless loop, as it was still not completed after 1 hour.
There is no progress meter to show the percentage completion of each stage in the Export sequence.
Open EdX documentation does not cover this problem.
