I found out that John Wiegley has been working on a faithful
conversion of the boost svn tree to git, see . Is that effort still
Also, there has been a very interesting discussion on branching model
and release process, which seems to have started with . Two
subthreads particularly interested me, i.e. the one starting in 
and another one starting just before  (especially the dialogue
between Vladimir Prus and Dave Abrahams).
This might have been mentioned before, but gitflow seems to be ideal.
