For the Sydney "Climate Change Interoperability Plugfest" we had a different kind of response. Much of the climate change data was provided in NetCDF "format" which most of those participating were unable to deal with.

This kind of response highlighted an opportunity for funding.

If issues are uncovered during sprint 1, then vendors have time to either fix them or to indicate how they will resolve them in the future through their road maps.  I believe the latter will be seen as quite positive in the GI industry.
