Either you are kidding or you have never used WebCVS. It's exactly the
same than going to any web address. If picking the files from the Web
is too much time then I think the author of the proposal could
distribute it to the members, but I don't see why the boost library
should do a release for that reason. You are free to release any time
you want to, of course, but you should admit that one feels a little
teased at hearing these motivations.
