Just looking over the report, it seems like a big chunk of these are
Copyright/License issues in what are likely generated html files:

  - libs/bimap/doc/html
  - libs/function_types/doc/html
  - libs/math/doc/gcd/html/
  - libs/python/doc/tutorial/doc/html
  - tools/quickbook/doc/html
  - libs/regex/doc/html
  - libs/type_traits/doc/html

that are checked in. So, I guess the question is, is there a way for the
Copyright/License to be put into the generated files by boost book? Might not
be easy, and I'm thinking we might have gone thru this in 1.34.

Overall though, this report looks remarkably good...I'm certain 1.34 didn't
get to zero. Anyway, it's easy to fix the .xml and .qbk files which is a big
chunk of the non-generated html files being flagged.
