Sorry for the very long delay in answering. I only recently found out
that adding tests for the 'master' branch requires a PR to tell the test
runner that these are new 'master' branch tests. That is the reason that
the tests appeared to complete but never showed up on the 'master'
regression report. For the 'develop' branch regression tests no such PR
is required. I am going to work to add tests for mingw-64/gcc on
Windows. Also if I have enough resources I would like to add tests for
clang on Windows. For header-only libraries clang tests usually work
very well but for non-header-only libraries clang has shown various type
of link failures. So I do not know how successful clang regression
testing on Windows will be.
