Agreed.  pycsw ships with an SQLite database of the OGC CSW CITE test data, but it would be valuable to have a common set of FGDC and ISO documents (in XML).

I also think it would be valuable to have CSW 'shootouts' in the future (thoughts?), but let's start with common sample metadata first.

Does anyone have any sample metadata suggestions?
