OK, did a run on my machine, took a while since I had to wait for a good
stopping point in the cycle (while I was awake). I also did a some minor
changes to the script so I could tell it from the
outside which branch I was testing. My tree looks like so:


"" is my master script which does the report building and
testing. I run it from the "Boost" directory as "./". For
the report generation for the release it now does:

     echo "************************ RESULTS ***********************"
     cd $HOME/devroots/Boost/boost-regression
     rm -f*
     #~ wget
     cp boost/tools/regression/xsl_reports/ .
     nice sh ./ release 2>&1 | tee results.log
     echo "********************************************************"
     sleep 300

I swap the "wget" vs. the "cp" based on whether I'm making changes to
the script or not. As you can see I run the
"" from the "Boost/boost-regression" directory. Since
the "" script is copied into that, then only prep I need
to do is have the dir structure. In particular the
"Boost/boost-regression/boost" tree. This is a checkout of the trunk
source tree which gets updated by "" on each run. But to
make the update work faster I switched out (svn switch) all the subdir
that are not important to the "empty" tree in the SVN repo:

     S regression
     S people
     S boost
     S libs
     S tools/litre
     S tools/release
     S tools/quickbook
     S tools/boostbook
     S tools/wave
     S tools/bcp
     S tools/buildbot
     S tools/inspect
     S more
     S wiki
     S doc

The generation worked fine for me, yes I have stuff in the merged dir.
You can see the results at
But I'll switch back to trunk regressions now :-)
