That's kinda odd. You're the second who reported that. What
are you getting? Are you sure the address you are using is
subscribed? I got tons of spam and disabled posting from
unsubscribed addresses.

Sure. That makes sense.

Nothing special. Spirit has its own release cycle though which happens
more often than boost's. There's also the miniboost package that should
have enough components to work for both 1.8 and 1.6. For this, you'll
need full access to the Spirit site. I'll give you one if you don't
have it already.

THANKS A LOT FOR VOLUNTEERING! I really appreciate that.
