By "we", do you mean ryppl?

I've gone through the process John Wiegley kindly sent me:

Grab the supermodule: git clone git://

Then 'cd' into the "boost" directory it created, and run: git
submodule update --init

Then continued as described here:

That produced a completely new tree with the forwarding headers, not
under version control. It seemed oriented to what a user might want.

What about a library developer? What does the tree structure they work
with look like? How does integrate with their development repo? I
guess the non-version controlled tree produced by the above could be
used as a "complete (integrated) release tree", but I'd like to know
the specifics, and give them a try.
