Subject: [boost] [Bug Sprint] Status for Thursday, December 2nd
From: Marshall Clow (mclow.lists_at_[hidden])

There were 33 changes to the trac database yesterday.
[ I'd like to say "33 tickets were changed", but some tickets were changed more than once. ]

The decrease in activity continues. It's time to ramp it up - there are only four more days in the Bug Sprint.

In the last bug sprint, we closed almost 100 tickets. So far this time, we've closed 16.
If you think it's too late to get involved - you're wrong!

If you're looking for things to do, there are several patches for Date-Time waiting to be reviewed (thx to ktchan):

        #2956 is very old and need review
        #3651 is simple documentation changes
        #4057 appears at a glance simple changes
        #4411 & #4754 is simple update to time zone data file
        #4798 is a simple change
        #4845 is simple documentation changes
        #4920 is simple update to date_time examples

and there are a bunch of program-options bugs that can be looked at:

        #850 program_options strips off escaped quotes in some situations
        #1132 zero_tokens doesn't work
        #3813 program_options::options_description.add() permits duplicate options
        #3909 parse_command_line has bad declaration
        #3992 Example in documentation for program_options doesn't compil
        #4040 Program Options has issues with options that support multiple tokens when using multiple parsers
        #4133 std::logic_error as a base class for program_options::error
        #4137 boost::program_options::value_semantic missing 's' at the end
        #4149 exceptions thrown by typed_value::default_value() are not documented
        #4150 bool_switch() is exception-unsafe
        #4151 option_description::option_description(3 args) is exception-unsafe
        #4267 validation_error documentation
        #4469 Bugs in program_options implementation
        #4510 [program_options]: implicit_value and positional options conflict
        #4597 options_description should be defined as noncopyable
        #4656 program_options parse_config_file() set iostream failbit even if the parse result is ok
        #4858 Documentation error - Responsefile example code can crash

(You all know the drill: develop a fix, test it locally, make a patch, attach it to the ticket)

A couple of notes:
1) Please log into the Trac system before you add/modify a ticket. "Anonymous said:" is hard to follow up.
2) It is perfectly OK to add a comment to a ticket that says "I tested this patch on my system (foo, gcc, etc) and it worked fine/didn't work/etc"
