Boost Testing :

Boost.System tests were added to boost-trunk/status on September 12th,
is still not reporting any results for those tests on the Sandia, OSL5,
and Rudbek Associates tests. From the dates for those tests, it would
appear those systems are not running on the current state of
boost-trunk/status, and that brings into question whether they are
updating their working copies at all.

What can be done to fix the immediate problem?

Why did the problem occur?

What can be done to ensure the problem does not reoccur?

What can be done to automatically detect and report the problem if it
does reoccur?

We need to start asking those questions every time there is any kind of
failure with the regression testing mechanism. Timely and accurate
regression testing is at the top of the list for improving the Boost
release process.
