Currently if I look at the docs in my SVN Trunk checkout, they try to
redirect to (for example)
but no such URL exists because MetaComm have stopped doing their nightly
build. I'm suggesting we change that URL to redirect to some stable
location within the boost.org domain, which whoever is running the nightly
build can upload to.

Sure, but that only gets run during the release process, or does it get run
more often? If so then yes we're covered.
