How does this compare with Boost CI I am utterly confused by all the
CI stuff for Boost and am really tired of spending time worrying about
it all. If there were some common solution for all Boost libraries which
was really easy to use I would use it but all that I see is that all
this CI stuff takes a large amount of time to understand and I would
rather spend time programming than time trying to decipher CI testing
for a Boost library.
