What Daryle is talking about is not the sandbox CVS itself, but
boost-sandbox project web space that you get from SourceForge, separate
from the CVS. We use that space on the main boost SourceForge project for
publishing daily regression tests, for example.

grab code for a review do not have to deal with yahoogroups.
