Starting a new thread - this is far to important to bury in the long
documentation thread!

I've been assuming testers will follow the same general procedure. But
other than verifying that hand-invoked b2 runs tests as expected,
nothing else has been done that I'm aware of.

None yet. I've been assuming we will just update

As a first cut, branch the current tools and convert any code that
currently uses svn commands to use git commands.

But before any testing is done, it would be helpful if Boost.Build was
updated to handle the generation of boost-root/boost header file
links, rather than relying on the workaround cmake script.

Do you feel comfortable enough with git to handle the conversion?
