Subject: [boost] [Bug Sprint] Status for Friday, December 3rd

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 126.96.36.199, etc) and it worked fine/didn't work/etc"
