Hello Hauke,

the author of the damn project [1] here. First, I appreciate you work. It's
awesome to see an alternative for comparison and inspiration.

I want to ask if you are willing to do some load testing. I did some for the
damn server [2] and I would love to see some comparable results. The idea is to
simulate mapathon on known hardware and share statistics.

The same question for HOT Tasking Manager developers if there are some
subscribed to the list -- would you care to do some comparable load testing?

Have a nice day,
