Not yet. The main problems we're facing (other than lack of time) are:
- Finding a sample is very hard,
- Finding a means of data collection that matches the sample is even harder
- Data collection is extremely expensive
- We'd need a constant observation of the market, rather than a one time
OSDL has offered some assistance on this topic, but no details have been
worked out yet.
Good point, though. Should we - given our constraints - work out a more
detailed roadmap to solve the research issue?
Do others (John, maybe) have ideas how we should proceed?
