In the long term, having some good-quality and widely-accepted datasets
is essential for the demonstration of qualities (benchmarking) as well
as continuous assessment (Is my solution doing right? How good is it?).

That said, I think that building and provisioning such datasets is a key
role that can only be played by operators, since they have tons of data
from which obtaining them. The only issues I see are the anonymization
of such data, to protect both the privacy of users and the potentially
confidential information from the operator itself, and the selection of
the *good quality* extracts.

Therefore, I hereby call to anyone from the list that is part of (or
involved with) an operator to please try to work with us on this issue
and evaluate the possible alternatives to get/build such datasets. Thank
you very much.
