Seems like we've scheduled to time to update the schedule ;-)

Dave commented already. I'll add:

1. For Boost, in addition to more toolsets, we'd need testing facilities
2. For my project, it works quite OK. Minor details are missing, such
as not building "install" targets by default.
3. For others... there are issue reports, so the system is not bug free.
OTOH, may bugs are in new features, not present in V1. The bugs are being
fixed and regression tests are added to make sure they don't occur again.
You'd have to experiment to see how the system works for you.

Of course, documentation and optimization should be done as well.
