there is no exprt of the entire app and its variants. I'd do the following:
* note down the PushAppID:MasterSecrete and the different VariantIDs:Secrets
* export the device metadata
* delete the openshift instance
* create a new (will now use 1.0.3), using the same name (that ensures the
URL stays - no need to do some redirects via DNS)
* manually setup Push App / Variants
* import the Devices

Now - a little "hack" go to the Openshift console and add the PHP my Admin,
and then go to the database, and change the PushAppID:MasterSecrete as well
as all the different VariantIDs:Secrets to their original values.
