Ok, here are the gmane links:

As I've understood, someone has forgotten to commit the working
changeset to the release branch.

If I've understood correctly, someone else has forgotten to put the
working version of the boost.test to the release branch.

The problem is that developers are forgetting to copy working changesets
to the release branch. This changeset has been made on the trunk before
1.54 was released.

Yes and no. The individual changes are initially made on the trunk and
have to be merged to the release branch after cycling the tests (but
sometimes developers are forgetting to merge them). The whole trunk is
never being merged to the release branch.
