Thanks for the answer Bruce.

So it seems that there is no technical reason stopping MapGuide from 
participating in the WMS Shoot-out. Of course there is the question of 
availability of resources which I fully appreciate since it's an issue 
for all of us.

The benchmarking team is already late on its schedule and needs formal 
answers/commitments from all teams ASAP. Could we get an official answer 
from the MapGuide Dev/PSC team? Everybody would love if MapGuide could 
join the fun, but if that's not possible then the benchmarking team 
would like to have an official answer that they can refer to when they 
have to explain in front of ~1,000 people why software A, B or C was not 

Thanks, and sorry for being persistent. I promise it's the last time I ask.
