OK, I think you are confusing what is a UI issue with an access issue.
Using SVN is *not* the easiest thing in the world. The vault is
designed, and is effective, because it present essentially a *zero*
effort level of entry for prospective Boost developers. So IMO SVN is
not the KISS solution. That leaves your complaint about having to go
find the vault, and having "strange" looking URLs. Currently that is a
side effect of both the software we use for the vault, and of the
historical wrangling I had to do with the SourceForge services. As I've
said in the past, I would love to find an alternative library that
implements the vault functionality (all of it, as we used to have it
before I had to disable some of it for security reasons). Additionally,
to resolve the discrepancy as to the location of the vault, it can be
moved either under the umbrella. Or it could be moved
under the umbrella, which would put it at
eventually. Both of those would be on the same server.
