Duplicating my managed package org

I have built a managed package, and created the namespace and all that....

 

If I use the IDE to pull out all components of the org, and re-deploy them to a new org - will it carry over the name-space, or will I be able to create a new one?

 

Basically, I'm trying to copy my whole org but without the namespace...

I've figured it out on my own. For others' sake: I will post here what I did.

 

- Installed the Force.com Migration Tool

- Using the Force.com IDE: Copied all needed code/objects etc from the Managed Package org to my machine.

- Using the search and replace function in the IDE - I replaced all instances of my namespace with blank.

- Copied the contents of the SRC folder in my Force.com IDE Workspaces directory in to the Force.com Migration tool directory in a new folder

- Set up the needed build.properties file and build.xml file - where the properties file was pointing to my new org

- opened a command prompt and followed the process documented here: http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/apexcode/index_Left.htm#CSHID=apex_deploying_ant.htm|StartTopic=Content%2Fapex_deploying_ant.htm|SkinName=webhelp
