It is requested that the exascale project management make strong-scaling benchmarks publicly available, sampled at roughly 1/64, 1/32, 1/16, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, and the whole machine.

By way of example, strong-scaling results on Summit are published only up to 25% of the machine (light blue represents missing data):
