I'm starting to test build release candidate files for 1.35.0.

The 1.34.0 and 1.34.1 release candidates were build by hand, IIUC.

There is a Python script to do that job
(boost-root/tools/release/, but it is out of date. I'm
starting to work on updating it.

What does such a script have to do?

* Export SVN branches/release with the correct line endings for POSIX
and Windows.
* Build the quickbook/boostbook docs.
* Set various file permissions.
* Build the actual .zip, .gz, .bz2, and .7z files.

What else? Where do the web pages come from?


PS: In the future, I think we should start building release files
nightly for the next release as soon as a release ships. That will speed
the process of identifying problems.
