Oops. I have done one run on the release branch - GreenLenny (Debian Lenny GCC
4.3). Sorry for not contacting the release manager before doing this.

I had been following boost dev (but not test) - surely common for those not
(yet) doing testing. It seemed some broader test coverage on release was needed.
So I followed the simple and easy to find instructions to run a test on release
at but then...

So - lets get this right - boost doesn't want the release branch tested on more
platforms/by more users? I find this fairly surprising and incomprehensible,. At
the very least it should be in big (friendly?) letters on the "running tests"
