Why do we not display regression test results for 1.33.1?

Martin Wille
Hi,

we apparently do not offer any way to see the regression test results
for the 1.33.1 release.

Why?


Regards,

I don't think anyone knows. I asked roughly the same question back in
mid December. Perhaps we could concoct a couple of conspiracy theories? :-)

That seems to be for 1_33_0?

Well maybe RC_1_33_0...

In addition, if you click on "Release" under "Regression Tests" on the
Boost homepage you are directed to the results for version 1.33.0
instead of the latest and greatest 1.33.1.

The boring theory would be that there is a hole in the release procedures --
or that this somehow got missed during production of release.  In any case I
wouldn't think it would differ much from 1_33 -- after all there were only a
handful of changes in 1_33_1.

I fixed it to point at the results for CVS-RC_1_33_0, which is the end
of the branch on which 1.33.1 was the latest release, so I think that
is accurate.  

I think we have at least two problems here:

1. CVS-RC_1_33_0 is probably mislabelled at meta-comm and should be
   called 1_33_1

2. The .htaccess document in our regression/ directory ought to point
   at a place called "Release" or "Latest" or something, which is an
   alias maintained at meta-comm, where the results are.  Otherwise,
   the release procedure involves more jockeying with the site content
   than should be necessary.

Of course, I could have failed to grasp the truth of the situation ;-)

No, I think you grasp it just fine ;-) ...But to comment on this for the
future. In the new website structure and functioning it would be
possible to do exactly what meta-comm does but directly on the website.
AFAIK, Meta-comm has a ZIP archive of the results and unpacks the pages
as needed. This is exactly what I'm doing with the doc pages so it would
easy to apply that. All we would need is as part of the release to
either push another ZIP (in addition to the boost*.ZIP) or make the test
result pages part of the distribution archive (drawback on that is the
size increase of the dist).

So eventually those multi-step procedures are going to be reduced to
either one or two "scp" commands.

Wonderful.  I really like what I've seen of that so far.  Do you have
an ETA for that new website structure, BTW?  (ducks and covers)
