Is there a list of the tests administered?   I would be interested in 
the rendering speed of differently sized images and where the sweet spot 
is for a particular engine in size vs rendering speed.  I did find the 
description of source data.  Also any thing related to reprojection of 
rasters on the fly?

Are the Live Benchmarks links going to be the same for the duration of 
the competition?
