I understand that my initial comment was a bit harsh and polemic, but
I'm glad to see that it generates an interesting discussion.

I unfortunately had a bad experience in sending a collection of
benchmarks a few years ago. I took the complete set of files that were
generated by Frama-C/Jessie/Why (Why2 at that time) in SMT (v1) format
and proposed that as is. This amounted to thousands of examples, but
most of them were "trivial": indeed, in practice a lot of VCs are
generated and a lot of them are simple. Then, during the next
competition, something like 10 files were selected from this set, and of
course all of them were trivial so useless to compare provers.

Thus proposing a collection of benchmarks is not a matter of sending all
the files you can keep on your computer as is, a selection must be made.
But how to do that ? And whatever the criteria chosen, filtering the
files will be a time-consuming effort...
