While the branch is not committed to the official gnucash repo yet, it's still 
code related to gnucash so feel free to post further questions or remarks on 
this directly to gnucash-devel. This makes the information available to other 
interested developers or community members. I am cc-ing the list on my reply 
to that effect.

I have commented on your fork_branch directly [1].

As explained there, you should change your calling code instead to properly 
deal with exceptions. The day and month ranges are already tested by the 
datetime code in the gnucash engine. As this code has been converted to c++ by 
John, it will throw an exception if any of the values is out of range.

You can ignore the travis failures for now. There is an issue with setting up 
google's test framework on travis. So all tests using that framework will 
fail. I plan to look at this once I finish up my current work on the csv

I'm not seeing this here. It clearly has to do with boost-regex and in 
particular with the invocation requiring icu.

Two things to check:
- do you have libicu development libraries installed ? On fedora the required 
package is libicu-devel.
- is your boost-reqex package compiled with icu support. I don't know if this 
has to be explicitly enabled or not, it just works for me with the fedora 
packages and I never built boost from source yet myself.

Happy new Year to you too!
