    Default Orkdal?

    Being from Trondheim in Norway I just wonder, what is the connection between the naming of test suites and counties in Norway?

    Hei

    Norway's a fine country to visit and I've been to Trondheim and elsewhere previously. Just since they have unique names and I know of no other software project using Norwegian words for codenames, that is primarily why you'll see them being used with the Phoronix Test Suite.
