Some of the thread has eluded to the software development process, of
which, version control is only one component and is not a silver bullet
for all of the other pieces. Specifically, version control is not
revision control. Version control is concerned with versioning state.
Revision control is concerned with authorizing changes. Version control
systems have access rights but aren't oriented toward revision control
processes. Much of the discussion necessarily compares centralized vs.
distributed though the terms are intermixed in the discussion but mean
something much different each context.

I think if version control can be decoupled from the rest of the
software development process, version control issues can be satisfied
quite easily. The rest of the software development process seems much
less defined to me for Boost and I think fuels much of the frustration
sometimes seen.
