Looks good, so far. I have several questions:
1) What are all the steps which are not annotated? Updates by authors
which do not work on stuff in my working set?
2) What happens to that abandoned branch? Will it remain publicly visible?
3) What exactly is the purpose of the blue branch?
4) Will there be one big boost repository? Or will every library have
their own sub repository?
