When I look in results/bjam.log, I'm seeing this at the end:

Any ideas on that?

At least on my boost working directory, the sync submodule was never initialized. A git submodule --init was needed.

Perhaps that happens when a submodule is present in develop, but not master?

If so, regression.py needs to code with this case. Rene?

I could take a look at this if it would help.  BTW, I've got a pull request against boost that would help me out if I could get it committed.  It fixes our ability to run regression tests from behind a firewall as well as a trivial fix to bootstrap.sh.

Could you send a pull request instead? In retrospect test/regression should have been a submodule instead of a part of the boost-super project, and we are really trying to limit the number of people who have write permission for the super-project. Eventually we will separate tools/regression, but that is lower on the priority list that a lot of other fires being fought.
