[Yum-devel] Nightly Performance Runs?

I think Terje has shown us that profiling yum is easy enough, and has
some pretty useful output.
Given that yum's performance is a frequent topic on this and other
mailing lists, maybe its time we set up some infrastructure to regularly
checkout the source code, run it through some typical operations, and
then graph the results over time?
I'm thinking we could do something like have a chroot (or maybe even a
VIRTUAL APPLIANCE) that the profiled yum operates in, against a local
set of repos.
So, what would be a good set of packages to use for the repo, and what
commands should get run? In honor of Terje, 'yum install xpdf' has to be
one of them.
Output could be a graph per yum command, plotting date vs time to run
the operation, with each command running against a few repos of
I was thinking of just using print_stats() to get profiling output, then
messing with that to draw some graphs, unless the kgrind style output
can be manipulated without running X.
What do people think?
