Subject: [boost] Maintenance suspended

I tried, I really did, to resolve the trunk and release branches of my libraries for the upcoming release. But the truth is that I'm finding Boost's current interdependent structure and the sluggishness of SVN on a project of our size just makes everything too hard to do. I'm now just declaring openly what has effectively been true for the past couple of months: I'm not maintaining my libraries until I complete the transition to Git that goes along with using Ryppln (http://ryppl.org). I'm sorry, I know it's not good or right, but I know it's going to be for the best in the long run. That should all happen fairly quickly now, anyway.
