Hi All (especially Aleksey and Misha!),
I note the following:
is titled "Unresolved Issues: CVS-RC_1_33_0." IIUC, we're looking
at the list of unresolved issues for the version 1.33.0, not the
current state of the release branch. The same goes for
* There's no link from http://engineering.meta-comm.com/boost.aspx to
the tables for the current state of RC_1_33_0. I think it would be
helpful to have one.
* I think it might be very helpful if the various views contained a
small amount of descriptive text at the very beginning. For
example, the Developer View might start with:
This view is designed for developers of Boost libraries. It
emphasizes the issues that need to be resolved in order for a
release to occur.
and the user view might start with:
This view is designed for users of Boost libraries. It shows which
(parts of) various Boost libraries can be expected to work on a
given compiler/platform, by emphasizing test failures.
* I keep forgetting what the "Full View/Release View" toggle is all
about. The descriptive text suggested above would be a big help.
Thanks for the truly wonderful support for Boost testing you have
given us so far; I hope these points will be helpful!
