No problem :).

Assuming the latest 'regression.py'(CVS /
python regression.py get-source download
will download the tarball ('boost-CVS-HEAD.tar.bz2') into the script's

I'm assuming that this one is not a problem. Let us know if it's not

python regression.py cleanup
python regression.py get-source unpack
python regression.py update-itself
python regression.py setup [--toolsets=...]
python regression.py test --toolsets=...
python regression.py collect-logs --runner=<your runner id>
This will give you a single 'results/<your runner id>.zip' that needs
to be uploaded back to us.

Again, I'm assuming that this is covered. You probably also want to
transfer back a possibly updated 'regression.py'.

The 'python regression.py cleanup' step above takes care of this.
> - On Machine A, upload the results
python regression.py upload-logs --runner=<your runner id>
will try to upload the corresponding zip from the 'results' directory.

The above was tested and should work out-of-box, but if it doesn't or
there are some additonal complications that we didn't account for,
please let us know!
