Could we consolidate everyone's concerns into a project outline, if one is 

- Everyone would like to have a TPC-like benchmark kit.
- OSDL script are not compliant.
- OSDL scripts are outdated/appear unmaintained.
- OSDL scripts need POstgreSQL-specific improvements.
- EnterpriseDB is apparently maintaining their own fork.

What can we do?

I found the TPC-C spec on the web, so it's freely available for 
implementation, it appears.
