H Daniel, thanks for your reply.

Since, I'm the maintainer I think it's just fine when gil::io is not
listed. But I like to add a notice in the release notes that the old
gil::io has been replaced.

I have added all the missing notices, removed tab characters, and
missing newlines for boost::gil.

I like to test that first on my machine. What would be the command
line to build all boost test suits?

gil::io has some compiler symbols to turn off reading from hard drive
and writing to hard drive. I though that might be helpful for
regression test servers that have limited capacities. When all tests
are enabled there are 300 files written and like 500 files read. Also
I don't wanna get into licensing issues for some of the test images
I'm using.

I have to learn git? ;-)

Thanks again,
