Subject: Re: [boost] Official warnings policy?
From: Robert Ramey (ramey_at_[hidden])

I would like the trunk tests and display matrix to add a couple of options
each platform.

currently it includes OS, compiler, compiler version, etc.

I would like to add

a) warning level
b) optimization level

So that we testers could choose which configuration they would
like to run and have that information appear in the top row
along with the other information.
