I can't really volunteer for nightly testing as I only have access to the
compiler at my employer's workplace. But can volunteer to investigate specific
issues, get clarifications from Intel etc.
Is there not a third way though: platforms lacking active volunteers need not
be constantly supported, but when a new release is imminent, casual volunteers
(like myself) be roped in to test the release to iron out any minor issues, or
if there are major problems, to at least figure out a subset of boost that would
work on these platforms?
