Sorry, it really is contradicting. What I meant is that there seem to
be a lot of interest in getting out of tool development in boost. But
I really think we should continue developing those tools. And I think
so because boost is really different from what is there outside.
Boost.build seems to me as something unique. Sure, there are a lot of
things that needs improvement, but the know-how boost has acquired in
boost.build is quite big and I believe using this knowledge to improve
bbv2 is better in the long term.
