I'm interested in Dart dashboard, but don't see how Boost could give up
control of our regression testing to a third-party.

While it may not be obvious to all Boost members, what tends to torment
Boost moderators (or at least me) are the functions where someone else has
control of our resources. YahooGroups. SourceForge.

Toolchains that aren't covered by the Boost distribution are also a
problem. I'm setting up a new machine right now. To run various Boost
procedures, I need to install five C++ compilers, Cygwin, Python, WinCvs,
and be able to cope with Windows/bat, Python, and bash scripts. People
would like change logs. The only scripts I can find are in Perl. So add
that to the list. I'm not at all happy to even think about anything else.

So while I wish the dashboard idea well, I'm not seeing how it can apply to
Boost's regular regression testing.

Am I missing something?
