Subject: [boost] policy on compiler warnings?

Does Boost have any documented policy on compiler warnings? I, like a
lot of people, use warning level 4 when compiling with MSVC. I also
usually turn on warnings as errors, but I cannot easily do that since
many Boost libraries emit warnings at warning level 4 under MSVC9. I
realize that warnings aren't really standardized across compilers, but I
would still expect a project that touts itself as " of the most
highly regarded and expertly designed C++ library projects in the
world." to strive for zero warnings under a commonly used setting on one
of its official test compilers. I have created the following tickets
regarding warnings that are currently causing me trouble:
