Let's try a one week minimum on the next release.
* Unless explicitly discussed, there should not be any regressions (pass
which changed to fail) compared to the prior release.
* We need to keep working on regression test automation (Dave and Beman
made some progress recently, but it still isn't quite ready for prime
* Dave and Beman have done some initial experiments on a system to allow
developers who prefer it to be emailed when a regression test they care
about fails. This would be done at the time of release candidate
* We are about to integrate Gennadiy's Boost.Test package. That will give
us more powerful testing tools.
