Great, thanks!

Yep, that's a SPAM protection performed by SourceForge. I know about
approximately one mail per year failing because of this, maybe there are
many more rejected mails.
Please create a postmaster mail account on your system! This will fix
the problem on your side (just adding "postmaster: root" to /etc/aliases
should be sufficient?).

Is v2 already stable enought for daily use?

In lib/logging/tests/:
In lib/logging/tests/format/:

The latest zip archive still contains these files (just search for *.o).

Will check later whether you was able to remove the last warning :-)

Don't worry. It was just for me and I shared it with you to avoid
putting the compiler flags into the mail. I prefer Makefiles over jam
and will continue using these if possible for simplicity ...

OK. I agree that this is sufficient.
