We were using it and noticed the change in reporting sometime back in
November (between 13th-14th). We found that maintaining compiler_status
for our own internal use is somewhat time consuming since relatively few
people use it. As a result, we started looking at using xml/xsl processing
to do a developer summary for internal use.

Internally, we use these generated results to keep track of Boost for our
pre-release compilers for which we cannot publish the results to an
external website. The xml/xsl processing is well maintained. The pages we
generate are similar to the regression testing results that are reported
nightly on the boost website but are for our own internal consumption.

We have had some modest success with this approach. Although, a few of the
nightly regression test processing scripts had to be "modified" in order to
achieve the results generation. I'm not sure if anyone else interested in
this as an alternative to compiler_status.
