Great! If you and Sebastian sign up for the Boost-Testing list at, that would be helpful since it is the best list for
discussion of these test related topics.

The "very small addition" is to display the revision number, in the form
"rev 12345" or similar, in the column header, centered under the
"runner". The number will be supplied as the value for a new "revision"
property in the results file. Here is the python code that will create
it, to give you the context:

         , {
               'tag': tag
             , 'platform': platform
             , 'runner': runner_id
             , 'timestamp': timestamp
             , 'source': source
             , 'run-type': run_type
             , 'revision': revision

Since the "revision" property is new, it won't be present in results
files for awhile. It should start to appear in the "BGD-Ubuntu" results
first, sometime later today or early tomorrow.
