I'm not too sure just how much this would work but, if you look under
YaST -> Miscellaneous there's the option for configuring
auto-installation which would allow you to create an autoinst.xml file
for use in cloning your system.

If you've taken advantage of the "clone this system" option at the end
of the installation, you can use the file created by that
(/root/autoinst.xml) as the basis for a complete clone of a present
system.

I'm not entirely sure how it would work if you've added packages from
third-party repositories (Packman, Guru, etc.) as they may or may not be
accessible during the installation. It looks like some experiments may
be in order to find out how that would work. Thank goodness for virtual
machines :)
