We have not any precedent on this, so the TPC should decide.  However,
my opinion (as a localization TPC member) is that all teams should use
the information we have on the web site, and anything beyond that should
be measured during the one-hour deployment time frame.

We do have precedent on this.  During the past edition, teams needing
those measurements took them during the one-hour installation time
frame.  My opinion is that it was a well balanced policy, and should
be kept the same.
