I'm sure somebody has. It's not being tested against the trunk
nor against 1.35 release branch at the moment, though.

You can use '--local' option to instruct 'regression.py' to use a
local copy of the release tarball.
Please note that the instructions above are applicable to
testing against 1.34.1 and older releases only. To run the tests
against the trunk/1.35 release branch, please refer to
> 2. As per the thread http://lists.boost.org/boost-testing/2007/08/4607.php
> I get:

> error: referred from project at

> # upload_logs failed with message "530 Login or password incorrect!"
ftp://fx.meta-comm.com/boost-regression/ has been used for holding
test results for past releases and is retired now. If you are trying
to run the test against the trunk, following the new instructions
should resolve this. Uploading 1.34.1 test results will still fail,
let me know if/when you get to that part.
