the results are on the web. Congratulations.

Now, there is a little problem with you and me using the same
toolset. HP-UX/ia64 and PA-RISC are distinct platforms, but in
the Boost test system, marking a test known failure and marking
a platform as required for the release is based on toolset

So, by virtue of using the "acc" toolset, you have "inherited"
all HP-UX/ia64 - specific known failures. Also, PA-RISC appears
in both Full View and the Release View on MetaComm web page (it
should appear only in Full View).

The obvious solution is to create, say, acc_pa-risc.jam file,
initially as a copy of acc.jam. Is there a better solution?

Another consideration is that, at some point, you might want to
make some PA-RISC - specific changes to toolset jam file (or I might
want to make some ia64 - specific changes) and my understanding
is that bjam cannot distinguish between the two HP-UX platforms:
for bjam, is HPUX for both, so, we cannot conditionalize
the changes. It can be a problem for library-specific jam files
like python.jam. I'm not sure what the solution might be. How do
other platforms deal with this situation? For example, different
flavours of Linux?

. I've now run the tests using a 1.34.0 sources built 'process_jam_log'.
. I've verified that the <runner-id>.xml has been created correctly and
  also been updated correctly in
. But I still don't see the results in
Am I missing something else
  to do or should I just wait considering that the tests were completed
only yesterday.
. Also I've attached the log of just in case. It seems to
say that everything is fine and dandy.

Oh, that explains it. 1.34 most definitely requires up-to-date
