I will be. It's a matter of time for me - like just about everybody else
on this list I've got a day job as well to pay for toys, err, the
My current plan is to get the compiler config sorted out to the point
where it builds as much of Boost as I can get done within a week or so.
Once that's done then I'll get cracking on the regression testing - as
it's my box there's nothing to stop me from setting up a nightly cron to
run the tests against CVS-HEAD, but I'm not there yet.
That said, one of the reasons I got this box here was to do exactly that.
