A similar file created from scratch. Taking a document that you have not
created is normally not correctly licensed. However a document that just
takes 6 seconds is already good and a good template that you can use to
design your document.

Yes. Of course. For the performance tests we only need the document and
I'll add it to the list. The files are in another repository and the
configuration for defining how the files are handled is not that obvious.
The results will appear on after adding the file.
