What exactly is the policy on library ownership. I forgot. What does
the boost license say anyways. Does it say somewhere that a library
is 'owned' by an individual and not by boost.

Why cant anyone on the approved boost developer list make changes to
any of the libraries they want.

There is a audit trail, it could be subsequently removed, if warrented.
