I don't know how it is determined how long test results stay in the
regression tests result matrix for either 'develop' or 'master'. But
even if you could run your gcc on Windows test once a week I would view
this as a big plus for the regression test results on Windows.
Unfortunately for me my current laptop, which is adequate for small
programming efforts, is too slow to run Boost regression tests. It takes
more than 24 hours to run regression tests on my laptop for a single
compiler. I really need to get a faster laptop in order to contribute
boost regression tests when running on it.
