Dear Jaidev,

it is indeed one of the biggest challenges to produce these types of
materials; hence one of the major targets for SWEO.

As for seed materials: we will have to collect those. I have some 'core'
presentation slide sets that I use to generate public presentations
on[1]; among those, maybe [2] is the closest to what you are looking
for. But let me emphasize that I do *not* consider that as a solution to
the problem, just as 'seed', as you call it.
