Subject: [boost] Which compilers are not supported for 1.48 ?
From: Antony Polukhin (antoshkka_at_[hidden])

Are really old and broken compilers still supported? Do we need them?

For example VC++6. It gives thousands of warnings on type_traits and
boost PP headers. Tests for VC++6 do not compile. Nobody tested boost
libraries on that compiler for years.

May be we shall get rid of compilers, that do not support template
partitial specialization, ADL or SFINAE?
If not, shall we try to make the tests pass (or at least compile) for them?

Best regards,
Antony Polukhin
