Am I the only one who thinks it logical that a regression test for
'master' should use the 'master' branch of everything and the regression
test for 'develop' should use the 'develop' branch of everything ? Why
is this even going to be debated ? I have no idea why the 'master'
branch uses the 'devlop' branch of Boost Build, but that does not seem
like it can ever be right.
