While this makes perfectly sense I wonder if it's still possible to use a
distributed version control system with Boost as it might be possible to
import/export files from/to SVN. It depends on the distributed version
control system used of course. But if some users of distributed version
control systems have some experience here it would be great if it's shared
and steps how to proceed are explained in the Wiki for example (personally
I'm interested in monotone :).
