I am with you on this, especially as we are in the UK. I am currently
organizing some staff help to prepare datasets. The AGIT conference
will keep me busy next week so more on this will start to come through
this list second week of July.

PLEASE keep other ideas coming and continue with parallel effort. I
would very much like to see a much more diverse approach to the
benchmarking effort including desktop platforms.

To the FOSS4G organizers:
I suggest we stick with 1h at the end of the conference to present
outcomes of the benchmark. I currently envisage a lightning talk style
cascade of quantitative and qualitative outcomes of out exercise. My
role would just be that of facilitator / moderator. Does this work for

Cheers & have a nice weekend,
