Just to say, I run this tester, for future reference.
It currently runs the day's svn head, which does lead to occasional breakage when something goes badly wrong with clang. However the last released version of clang isn't really good enough to run all of boost.
Hopefully when the next version is released, I will track that instead.
I am currently extending the list of clangs I test to (I will document this in comment.html) include clang in c++0x mode (with the gnu++0x flag, slightly confusingly) and with the libc++ standard library. These currently fail quite a lot, apologises for any confusion they might cause.
