It is poor rhetoric like this which really leads to bad decision making.
SVN versus Git has nothing to do with patches being dropped. If the
person responsible for applying patches is not doing it, patches will
not be applied no matter what is being used. Ditto if there is no person
responsible for doing it. if you feel Git is the solution because
everybody then has the right to apply changes to Boost whenever they
like, I think you are dreaming.
