We could use this to our advantage, so that we can provide documentation
both for the current release and documentation from CVS. We seem to have
many users that keep up-to-date with what's happening in CVS, why not help
them out a bit? If nothing else, the move to SourceForge will make it much
easier for me to automate builds of BoostBook documentation.
