Subject: [boost] Boost-1.62: How to get list of all dirs under 'run-tests libs:' target from status/Jamfile?

I use latest Boost versions to test new C++ compiler in development stage.

It's important for me to know what would be "pass rate" for every
library which reports on its Regression Testing website.
To calculate all those pass rates I created script which goes inside
every library's 'test', 'example' or whatever subdirectory and launches
bjam from there.
It creates a separate logfile(s) for every library which I then analyze
to calculate "pass rate".

But before launching my script I need to know the whole list of dirs
which uses for its Regression testing.
In the previous Boost-1.61.0 version I was able to easily produce such
list by extracting it from 'status/Jamfile.v2'. It looked like this:

run-tests libs :
     accumulators/test # test-suite accumulators
     algorithm/test # test-suite algorithm
     algorithm/minmax/test # test-suite algorith/minmax
     concept_check # test-suite concept_check
     config/test # test-suite config
     container/bench # test-suite container benchmarks
     container/example # test-suite container_example

As you may see this list contains not only 'test' subdirs, but also some
others: 'example', 'bench', etc.
But now the problem is that in Boost-1.62.0 'status/Jamfile.v2' does not
have such full list anymore.

Could anyone suggest me some hack how to produce the full list of tested
libraries for Boost-1.62.0, similar to one which Boost-1.61.0 has?

It would be nice if bjam will eventually have a special option which
will allow to produce such list, but for now I'd appreciate just a hack
which will help me to solve this issue.
