OS is a mix of distributions of GNU/Linux (which is really one OS) and
leaves out NetBSD, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, OpenSolaris, not to mention AIX and
HP-UX.

I realize OS version is then a huge bit of work, but I would also say
it's not that important.  You might just have "unreleased / current
stable release / previous stable release" and call it a day.

architecture has some odd content.  '32 bit' is not a cpu architecture,
except to people who only know about intel.  If you mean 'i386' (or
perhaps ia32), say that.  There's also ia64, seldom found, and 'amd64'
(== x86_64).  There's a good list at

http://www.netbsd.org/ports/#ports-by-cpu


What I'd find interesting is

  what kinds of grids people have

  what encodings they are using

  how they are dealing with lease expiration

  whether the grids are single-admin or shared

  if shared, how they manage leeching/sharing

  their overall happiness


i haven't gotten to the point where tahoe is useful to me; it's just fun
to try out and i hope it will be useful later.
