Hi Lorenzo,

No, we'll leave the Sandia-Sun tester running as long as we can. Go
to the Legend at the bottom of the trunk results page, one of the keys
is this:

n/a The library author marked it as unusable on particular platform/

I suggest you mark your library as n/a for the Sandia-Sun tester, as
others have done for their libraries, e.g. proto, property_tree,
statechart, xpressive, etc...
