[SciPy-Dev] Bundling Boost?
Mon Oct 8 12:27:43 CDT 2012
Andy, I agree with your point but why are you linking to boost trunk as
opposed to tests against a recent release? My understanding is that the
IBM compiler team, for example, always makes sure that some version of
boost builds against their C++ compilers, even if it is not bleeding-edge.
