No, I think you grasp it just fine ;-) ...But to comment on this for the
future. In the new website structure and functioning it would be
possible to do exactly what meta-comm does but directly on the website.
AFAIK, Meta-comm has a ZIP archive of the results and unpacks the pages
as needed. This is exactly what I'm doing with the doc pages so it would
easy to apply that. All we would need is as part of the release to
either push another ZIP (in addition to the boost*.ZIP) or make the test
result pages part of the distribution archive (drawback on that is the
size increase of the dist).
So eventually those multi-step procedures are going to be reduced to
either one or two "scp" commands.
