While I agree that the master branch is for the next release, I'd
dispute strongly that it doesn't say "anything" about previous
releases. It says just about everything for those libraries which
haven't undergone revision, and still says a lot--or at least
something--for the rest. My personal experience has been finding the
bug I suspected in a library by looking at the matrix, sometimes
with the library a couple revs out of date.
Just guessing, but I'd say it's a pretty good bet statistically that
a yellow mark on the master regression will still be yellow after 90
days (at least).
When a boost user looks at an out-of-date matrix, what does (s)he
see for his/her platform? Mostly green (hopefully!), some yellow
that's been fixed (maybe!), some that hasn't. That's more valuable
than seeing nothing at all.
(Ok, ok, 90 days is pretty long, but still...)
