Good to know. I think something more-or-less intelligent in Git(Hub) already made "develop" the default source when creating new branches, but it's good to know that this is in fact the desired "way of doing it" in the Boost repos.

I'll talk to some people at my company. I'd be all for it. Only thing is, CPU cycles on the z are a precious good because our machine is pretty limited (MSUs). Maybe we could create an LPAR with super-low priority, so that the tests can run when the machine isn't busy doing something else (like compiling our stuff or running our tests). IDK, we'll see.
