Now this time, would there be any objections if I (or other people)
tried managing a patch release for 1.38.0? Would anybody else be
interested in helping release a 1.38.1 with fixes hand-ported from
trunk to 1.38.0?
I've found some Jamfile fixes required to work around the (I'm
guessing, now defunct) 'message' function in Boost.Build v2 that's
bundled with Boost 1.38 that might be worth looking at.
I'm also interested in bringing in a newer version of Boost.Build from
the nightly builds into the 1.38.0 release to be packaged as 1.38.1;
