Thing that is bothering me:

" doc/ ...............A subset of all Boost library docs"

1. Are some libraries undocumented?
2. Is their documentation placed elsewhere? Where?

Oh I see the point "4. Don't be distracted by the doc/ subdirectory...
Start with libs/index.html". This explains a bit, but better not to
have to explain anything.

I opt for ,,merging'' doc/ and libs/index.html. So that a causal
downloader will have an access to *whole* documentation from
doc/index. It could be done as simply as copying libs/index.html to

I guess that doc/ is a documentation written in a new format, and the
documentation in libs/ uses old format. So this doc/index.html will
stay there until the rest of documentation is converted to new format
(if ever).

It's just for convenience.

Also I noticed that the redirections are wrong in *many*
documentation files. For example - a person without a network
connection, but with downloaded and installed boost opens a file
doc/html/any.html and what happens?

This file should contain a redirection to locally instaled file.

Maybe this is out of the scope of your post, but this difficulty in
browsing documentation always annoyed me, when the network was slow or
