Has there been any progress on these questions ?
There is no 'stable' branch right now (no matter the spelling), so
people don't know what reference code to take if they want to set
up a development branch, or to merge 'new' (accepted, but not yet
released) libraries in.
Pleeaase ! (Any decision is better than no decision...)
(Also, somewhat unrelated, http://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/roadmap
indicates the 1.34.1 release as open and '3 months late', and there is
no place discussing what to expect from 1.35 in terms of new features,
additional libraries, etc.)
