This is interesting. I am referring to Boost.Opitonal tests on Travis
configured here: https://travis-ci.org/boostorg/optional
I am a maintainer of Boost.Optional, and I never configured these tests.
They were not there a year ago, and at some point I started receiving test
results from this site upon every commit. So I assume there must have been
a Boost-wide initiative to put additional tests there. I assume that
someone on the list might have taken part in configuring them, and may know

I am not sure what you mean here. The library should be prepared for every
configuration of compiler/standard-library, so I do not mind testing for
C++03. My usage of std::is_trivially_default_constructible is #ifdef-ed
with (__cplusplus >= 201103L).
