Perhaps this isn't the best time to raise this, but wouldn't it be
better if Boost eventually moved to a more distributed version control
system? Then there wouldn't be a single point of failure that stopped
all work. I'm not entirely sure that there is a system which has
everything that Boost needs (e.g. free, distributed, runs natively on
Windows, and can work with the current Sourceforge infrastructure),
but it might be useful to consider alternatives.
