Rawhide has lots of debugging turned on in various places so it is not
suitable for benchmarking until this is removed. Target beta or the final
Even thou I never looked for a list of what's enabled in rawhide, I'd be
surprised if other distros do not have something similar. They may be in
different development stage, right (e.g. already beta).
From the other comments: I understand the benchmarking is not only
some test suite, but about comparing and tuning. I may try to arange one
old PC with "out of the box" rawnhide to run periodicaly e.g. the Phoronix
test suite and publish the results - this will provide comparison. Let's
see, if it'll be useful.
