cd ~ # or some other directory of your choice mkdir boost-reports # or some other name of your choice cd boost-reports mkdir trunk git clone --recursive email@example.com:boostorg/boost.git boost cd boost ./bootstrap.sh git checkout develop # we use the branch develop tools/regression git pull # Only tools/regression need to be on develop, so no submodule checkout here
This only has to be done when there is a change to the report generation program.
pushd ~/boost-reports/boost git pull pushd tools/regression/build ../../../b2 boost_report # find location of exectuable, then: mv bin/gcc-4.8/release/boost_report ~/boost/boost-reports # see todo below
This step performs the following actions:
cd ~/boost/boost-reports/boost git pull cd .. boost/tools/regression/xsl_reports/build_results.sh trunk
Thanks to Tom Kent, Steven Watanabe, and Rene Rivera for illuminating various dark corners of how reporting works.
