Can you:

- Add your details to libs/maintainers.txt
- Add the library to the appropriate categories in libs/libraries.htm
- Try to fix the issues in

You obviously need to use non-ascii characters in your tests, so can
put 'boostinspect:noascii' in the appropriate files to suppress the
error there. Unless it's possible to read them from a file or use

You're also getting unlinked file errors for your doxygen template
files, the best solution is probably to move them into a subdirectory
so that we that can stop the checks for that subdirectory - will also
be cleaner if all template files are stored in a suitable directory so
that they aren't confused with documentation html files.

It isn't all libraries, and some of the failures in other libraries
seems to be due to Boost.Test. But there does seem to be some issue
with the setup, it might be something to do with dynamic linking.

You should mark that in explicit-failures-markup.xml.

Is that for both mingw and cygwin?

This kind of detail should go into explicit-failures-markup, so that
if someone cares about the platform, they will know what the issue is.
