|Description||In this paper we postulate the need for a homogeneous sample of non-variable stars for various astrophysical applications. Although there are almost 1,000,000 high-quality space-based photometric light-curves publicly available, such a comprehensive sample still does not exist. We review the needed steps to achieve this goal, the possible pitfalls and present the first results of our corresponding project.|
