I've been running Boost tests on HP-UX/acc (full, non-incremental test
run) on a daily basis for more than a year, with a few exceptions: for
example, this weekend, the lab machines will be shut down for
infrastructure upgrade. This is what allowed HP-UX/acc to become a
release platform in 1.34.
Since you did not include HP-UX/acc in the list of release compilers
for 1.35.0, you, probably, think that this platform does not have
"enough testing resources". What makes you think so?

*No* It only means that for the 1.35.0 release we are only testing on
platforms where enough testing resources have been contributed, and are

No. Boost developers aren't going to deliberately cripple cross-platform
support in their libraries. They will continue to watch the tests
results for all platforms, and apply reasonable fixes when they can.
