Subject: [boost] [Bug Sprint] Status for Friday, December 3rd
From: Marshall Clow (mclow.lists_at_[hidden])

There were only 13 changes to the trac database yesterday.
[ I'd like to say "13 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 three more days in the Bug Sprint.

In the last bug sprint, we closed almost 200 tickets (not 100 - I misremembered).
So far this time, we're down a (net) 13 tickets from the start of the sprint!
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"
