Mark has been maintaining the DBT2 kit for a while now - since he was at OSDL.

As far as recent updates, he's been focused on updating the results
parsing and graphing libraries, which were written in Perl. I've been
helping with that a little

We've been presenting results -- first some IO tests at Linux Plumbers
Conf, and the very beginnings of postgresql tuning results at Pg West.
 That's Mark, Gabrielle Roth and me.

I'll be presenting some of our more recent results, and the donated HP
hardware, at FOSDEM. (assuming my talk got accepted! :D)
