status: closed, "fixed"
status: new

7410 was "fixed" 2 years ago. it is not fixed from the perspective of
any user of a released version of boost, though.

7397, 7417 and 7419 are open for over 2 years with *NO* comment, except
for your "blanked update message".

personally i'd resolve an issue as "fixed", iff the end user will
receive the fix in the next release.

is "soon" a matter of days, weeks, months or years?
