I think yes, all questions that are targeted at Boost.Build itself
(tools/build/v2) or top-level Jamfile or status/Jamfile, should go to
Boost.Build mailing list so that to reduce traffic there.

I think Boost.Build questions should be posted there only if you suspect
there's problem with individual library and you want to bring
attention of library's author.

I'm not sure. While the change seems safe, are you sure it's good
time to start renaming files on RC branch? I though only bug fixes
are OK at this point.
