Subject: [boost] [Boost.Python] Request to merge some commits from trunk into 1.40 branch

[I accidentally sent this e-mail to the C++-sig mailing list, please
don't consider it a cross-post]

As announced on the C++-sig mailing list, PySide was released: I think it was not clear in the announcement, but
PySide uses Boost.Python.

And for it to work properly, we need a few patches that are already in
Boost SVN trunk, but in none of the release branches.

Therefore, is it possible to get these patches merged into the 1.40
release branch before the final release? That would make life a lot
easier for other distros to try PySide without requiring to apply
patches separately.

The relevant commits are listed in, they are:

Add generic call operator support:
Support C++ enums which have the same value:
Fix unsigned integer converters:
Fix unsigned integer converters (update):

I think these patches fix important bugs in Boost.Python, and the
first two were in trunk even before the 1.39 release, but were never

Thanks in advance,
