Generally I’ve been waiting for testing to cycle for a while before merging changes to master.

Since very few people test Boost MPI on develop or master, I try to be very cautious with commits to develop and merges to master. It’s kinda easy to break things and, given the scarcity of MPI and Graph Parallel testers, I prefer to test the PR’s, develop and master branches on internal resources to ensure I don’t hit any problems before I push them to github.

Are you familiar with the Boost testing pages? Can you contribute any testing resouces to specifically test MPI and Graph Parallel?

Generally yes, everything in master goes into the release, that’s why we’re careful about what ends up in master.
