Sorry if I wasn't clear. Boost.Test in trunk was not green for several Sandia testers on Darwin and perhaps other platforms but I can't recall them all at the moment. But I've been most concerned about Boost.Test on Darwin as a number of developers have asked me to debug Darwin Intel problems with their libraries that, from what I can tell, originate in Boost.Test. I've replied to those developers that I think we need Boost.Test on Darwin Intel to work correctly (passing all tests) before I can invest much time trying to debug their code. I suspect many of the other library problems will vanish once your library is passing all of its tests.
