Thanks. That should help some, although if I were looking to add a
feature, I wouldn't necessarily find it.

The checkout instructions on the bugs.html page aren't great. To find
them, I can't read the "If You Have a Fix for the Bug" section, since
that just links to, which isn't enough
to check out the repository. I have to instead read the "Reporting
Boost bugs" section (i.e. not what I'm trying to do), and click the
"boost public subversion repository" link. Why not include "svn co boost-trunk" directly on the

Testing looks like it's covered on the separate "Running Regression
Tests" link, so that's enough for me to get started.

Thanks for the links,
