I thought some of you might be interested in this article from
about PostgreSQL's transition to git:


     The PostgreSQL Project finally switched from CVS to Git in
     September 2010, and did its first release based on the new
     Git repository on October 5. Making the switch happen took
     years and resulted in at least one near-disaster. Other
     projects that are contemplating, or working on, a transition
     in their version control system may find useful lessons in
     how PostgreSQL fared.

I don't draw any particular conclusions from it w.r.t. Boost, but it
might be worth a look - that is, if you have any spare reading-time
left, after catching up with the recent unprecedented verbosity on this list...

Regards, Phil.
