Good to hear GBIF is using a real database system (postgres) :-)

But seriously, I would be very interested to be able to use dowload such a dump and use it locally.  And it would be
absolutely fantastic if some sort of regular download of updated dumps could be made available.   But I would already be
very thankful for a one-off download.
