Hello Boris, thank you for your contribution!

This is correct: release view only shows required platforms.

In any case, you cannot ask for HP-UX/aCC6 to be promoted
to "required platform" status for Boost 1.34, as the list
has just been closed:

you might want to propose it in Boost 1.35.

I don't think there's any estimated date yet. What seems
likely, though, is that the release procedure will undergo
some major changes, like switching to SVN and trying a
different release model hopefully guaranteeing an always-ready
release branch, see

This scheme implies that regression tests are run continuously,
not only when the release is approaching, at least for required
