Thanks Aleksey! That's good news. If there is anything I can do to help,
let me know.

If past experience is any guide, quite a bit more time is needed between
branch-for-release and the actual release.

That being said, we do need to exercise more discipline to ensure changes
are committed to CVS well before branch-for-release.

CVS is in pretty good shape at the moment in terms of regressions against
1.31.0. One thing Boost developers can do to make Aleksey's job easier is
to check regression results carefully after making any changes, and fixing
regressions right away rather than waiting for branch-for-release.
