After a bit of thinking... I thought it would optimally be good to have
a ticket status to correspond to this. But it's not possible to change
those in Trac. But there is one aspect we can use to describe the state,
we can add a "Boost Release Branch" version, on par with the "Boost
Development Trunk" version we have. So a ticket that is part of the
1.35.0 milestone can:

* Be tagged as version "Boost Development Trunk" if it's only in the
trunk, whether it's resolved or not.

* Be tagged as version "Boost Release Branch" if it's been merged
successfully to branches/release. But only if it's resolved in the trunk
and verified to resolved in the release branch.

I think that follows the new release procedures accurately.
