What impact does this have on regression testers? Do the regression
scripts handle everything, or do testers need to take some action?
(E.g., installing git.)

I suggest posting to the boost-testing list to give a the testers what
they need to know (and a heads-up). I don't follow this list closely,
and just happened to come across this post.
