Suggestion : Will we make "Workshop Paper & Presentation DB or links site" in this beowulf site,

There are many different workshop or Seminar was & will held in many countries. 

but, In reality, many people in the world can't participate in those workshop or Seminar. 

I think, for the people who can't attend in those Seminars, Will you put  the workshop Papers & Presentation Files 

in your homepages or in this beowulf (mailing list) site ?

I think, If we gather & make the so called "Workshop Paper & Presentation DB or links site" in this beowulf site, 

This kind of collection papers is quite differnet approach from the e-journal which need more formal restriction than this 

kind of freely discussion Workshop papers. 

If we gather & make the so called "Workshop Paper & Presentation DB or links site" in this beowulf site,  Many people 

will be gather the information more easily & learn from them .

P.S : I suggsted so called "Benchmark DB" like for the beowulf clusters  few months ago.
         but I don't see many progresses from this beowulf site. 
         Will you tell me who run the "Benchmark DB" now ?
         and if someone run the "Benchmark DB", Will it be linked in this ?
         or Will the (Scyld) make the "Benchmark DB" for the beowulfian in the world ?  
         If Scyld have any intention to make a "Benchmark DB" in this beowulf, 
         Will Scyld allow me make a korean Scyld Branch, and make a "Benchmark DB" there & link it to the beowulf list ?   
         Thank you
