As usual, a red cell means a regression from the 1.30.0 tarball, a dark
green one - an improvement.

Yes, it's a known shortcoming - or a feature, depending of how you look
at it. By default, new tests are expected to pass.

Which is totally fine. If you provide us with the list of expected
failures, these will be cleared.

Hmm, looks like another configuration problem to me. We'll take a look
at it.

"meta-" is our prefix for non-boost toolsets.

Well, most of them are not really special. For instance, bcc-* ones were
introduced for the only purpose of being able to test 5.5.1 and 5.5.4
compilers simultaneously. The complete list of differences is available
