I didn't lie, I fixed the MSVC issues. Also I asked on how to compile
with gcc4.4~c0x, but I got no answer and I do not know where to look.

I believe this code is correct:

static std::map<char,char const*> const char_type{{
     {'<' , "lt"},
     {'>' , "gt"},
     {'&' , "amp"},
     {'\'', "apos"},
     {'"' , "quot"}
#else /.../

Maybe I am missing something.

Same error.

What am I supposed to do with this log?

or that:


Why aren't the runners be able to capture the outputs?

Maybe because of "-Werror=unused-parameter" ? or maybe this one is
hiding something else?

and maybe because of "-Werror=sign-compare" ? or again this is hiding
something else that was cut off in the report...

I believe this is the wrong thing to do for those runners: raising those
trivial warnings as errors makes them quite useless and this is a waste
of time and resource for everybody.

Is boost.test compiling for the end users of those platform? I do not
know. Those runners are telling just nothing.

What is the point you are trying to make?

On my side, I believe the regression workflow and tools **can and
should** be improved (runners cycling more frequently, outputs properly
captured, history, no downtime due to some big zip file, better
ergonomy, more responsive, etc etc).
