Subject: [Boost-build] tools/build/v2 tests causing release branch reporting to fail
From: Beman Dawes (bdawes_at_[hidden])

Noel Belcourt has finally tracked down why the branches/release
regression reporting is failing, and it is because the Boost build test
results from the test runners contain invalid XML. This in turn causes
the report generation to fail.

Noel reports getting an error from all release results.

# target doesn't exists, building
# Merging "/incoming/branches/release/
processed/Sandia-darwin-ppc.xml" with expected results...
# Skipping
due to errors
not well-formed (invalid token))

The errors are of this form:

failure {{{
'-d0', '--quiet', 'toolset=darwin-4.0.1',
'--ignore-toolset-requirements']" returned 1
reason {{{
error returned by bjam
Generating a CPP file...
...skipped <pOther/bin/darwin-4.0.1/debug>other-obj.o for lack of
...failed updating 1 target...


I've confirmed his results, and further find that the reporting runs OK
if the invalid XML text is removed.

Perhaps something didn't get merged to release branch when the build
tests were added to trunk?
