Is that really a good idea? These should be flagged as not having the
Boost license until we get them replaced. Isn't that the whole point

If the only edits were made by people who are reachable, you can get
their permission to change the license. Or, if they're already listed
in more/blanket-permission.txt, you don't need to ask.
