Hi Matthew,

FYI - Boot speed metrics for Ubuntu, UNE (Unity), and Kubuntu daily 
builds are kept here [1].  The QA team has been collecting these numbers 
for Maverick and reporting the regression analysis data during the 
Friday release meetings.

A discussion of the data collected and presented in [1] might be a 
beneficial topic.  It may help other teams trying to get similar metrics 
because as you mentioned, it would be beneficial to see performance 
numbers of other applications across daily builds and previous releases.
