I was trying to fix some bugs on the tracker. It was done on SVN before we switched to Git. At least some of them should have been uploaded to the release branch. I remember not being able to figure out that line-983 error. I haven't looked at any Boost code since the Git switch, but you can e-mail me if you have any questions. Daryle W.
