Boost Testing :

The situation re this platform is characterised by the following facts.
a) The serialization libraries fail to build on the VC 8.0 platform.
b) With my local copy of VC 8.0 on my local machine all libraries build and
all tests results are the same as with VC 7.1
c) up until a short time a go there was anohter VC 8.0 platform on the test
matrix which showed all tests passing.
I checked the library build failure and traced into spirit. Spirit tests
also fail. I'm quite confident that addressing the spirit failures will fix
the serialization library build failure for VC 8.0
What, if anything, should be done about this? There are a couple of options
a) Presume that its a quirk with VC 8.0 and just wait for it to go away in
the next beta
b) Persume its an error in Spirit and fix spirit so it passes the spirit
c) Presume its an error in the serialization library.
I'm not in a position to do b). So if that's the right thing I would hope
someone would address it.
I could do c) but would want to wait until b) isdone.
So, for now, I'm doing a)
