Boost :

Maybe it's my expectations that are out of whack.
Are there any rules for what's "commit"ed to the CVS main branch?
things I've found:
1) the documentation main page still has ???, 2002 - Version 1.29.0
on it. Is this really the latest? how can we tell??
2) regex doesn't compile on vc7
3) function causes errors throughout boost (and _really_ unfortunately in
my projects for work which make use of multi_array)
C:\Boost Releases\boost\boost\function\function_template.hpp(286) : error
C2039: 'type' : is not a member of
         C:\Boost Releases\boost\boost\function\function_template.hpp(532)
: see reference to class template instantiation
'boost::function2<R,T0,T1,Allocator>' being compiled
C:\Boost Releases\boost\boost\function\function_template.hpp(286) : fatal
error C1507: previous user errors and subsequent error recovery halt
further compilation
Apparently the latest change:
"revision 1.54
date: 2002/11/09 16:02:47; author: dgregor; state: Exp; lines: +59 -3
Support assignment from 0, construction from 0, and comparison to zero."

has messed things up

So, I guess the question I really have is:
Are there any expectations of stability for the mainline?
   If so, what are they?
   else what expectations do the developers have that anyone will bother
testing any of their changes?

am I wasting my time attempting to build and use the mainline CVS branch
every day?
