Yeah, I think that's what it amounts to for fuseki. The relevant
bullet point would be along the lines of "no sessions, deployments
exist of multiple instances with one backing database".

Yup, or, write on your blog but put the link on the site :)

Too few! From memory, I think lucene, solr and hadoop have or used to
have a bunch of that kind of stuff on their website. ActiveMQ had a
lot of good content about older versions, most of that is on the
fusesource site now.

Absolutely. So the useful thing is a combined description of the
hardware, how its configured, what it is being used for, the test
process (ideally with code), and the numbers actually found for that
specific situation. Anything less, well, the good engineers will
probably ignore it :-)

I wouldn't worry about trying to producing numbers for artificial
purposes, it takes too much time. But publish what you do have and
encourage others to do the same.
