Thanks for posting this list, Gennadiy.

I'll volunteer to write up a section on the production use of
Boost.Test. I will, however, need source material in order to do so.

Boosters, have you ever or do you now use either Boost.Test or an
alternative testing framework in a production-like manner?
- with more complicated or less common build systems
- when regression testing across multiple versions of dependent libraries
- when regression testing across multiple toolchains and/or platforms
- as part of deployments within virtualized containers
- et cetera

If so, could you please describe your setup, either here on-list or
privately to myself? I will collect the responses received, and from
them, prepare documentation so that people new to Boost.Test can get
started with setting up production-quality regression testing
