FWIW, I agree with Victor. I'd go further and state that the CVS should
_always_ be kept in a release-ready form. Any deviations from this ideal
should be fixed as quickly as possible. I, personally, always use the CVS
version of Boost, I never wait for an "official" release. This model is not
well supported. Most energy is invested in releases, which makes them very
hard to manage (because the effort is not amortized over time.)

Scheduled releases are still a good thing because they provide a deadline,
