Not really. Many of the projects start out entirely separate from the
sandbox, or the regular SF CVS. The sandbox CVS is a relatively new,
with respect to how long Boost has been around. I know 4 years doesn't
seem new to some :-) But Boost has been around for at least 7 years now

Google :-) Mostly it was the better permission control, ease of use, and
integration that Trac provides. We needed a repository the students
could use without others possibly getting in their way.

Irrespective of the above... Yes Boost is also trying to move to SVN.
Note: I'm not endorsing SVN as a good revision control system.
