The rate depends on how long regression testing takes plus how long
building the results takes. The machine I run this on is the same Ubuntu
machine I run the gcc-4.1.2 and gcc-4.2.1 incremental tests on.
Currently, overall the cycle is about *two hours* as seen from
<http://beta.boost.org:8081/Boost_HEAD/Dashboard/> (look at the RSI
Droid entries). Looking at the timestamps on my log files it looks like
the time is split evenly between the two parts. So my 1.6Ghz+2.5Gig
machine builds the results in about an hour. Hence if we want faster
result reporting we either move the result building to another
equivalent machine, or move it to a faster machine :-)
