Boost will not consider another source code management tool without a
complete plan for hosting the Boost repository, including details
regarding who administers the server, where that server is located,
whether it can handle our bandwidth requirements, etc, along with a
plan for migrating all of Boost's tools and processes on all platforms
to this new system. Without a comprehensive plan, any discussions of
alternative source code management systems for Boost are merely noise
on this mailing list, and distract us from what we do best: build
great libraries for the C++ community.
