Hi everyone,

I've been working on a build system for boost, based on Jam
( I have substantial code, but it
needs some serious cleanup before it's ready for public consumption. In
order to figure out what to do next, I thought it would be a good idea to
make a design document. That's not finished yet either, but a preliminary
version that should be enough to get a good sense of things is available.
Please see:

I am actually interested in uses beyond boost (we need a good cross-platform
build system at work), so please feel free to think "outside the boost box"
when reading this. I look forward to your comments. I hope to finish this
document and post the Jam code in the next few days.
