Sure. Keep me in touch in you publish your slides later.

My plan for the short term is to analyze last (latest?) benchmarks
hiccups and try to fix them.

The fully automated script to run benchmarks is already written:
https://github.com/python/performance/tree/master/scripts

Then, the plan we decided with Zachary Ware is to run a script in a
loop which compiles the default branch of CPython. Later, we may also
do the same for 2.7 and 3.6 branches. And then add PyPy (and PyPy 3).
