Thanks for the work. Having done CVS -> svn myself, I really appreciate this.

I have some questions concerning the Boost.Build conversion.

The repository at

contains a "buildv2" directory containing the Boost.Build .jam files and
"jamsrc" directory containing the c sources.

The original idee from Volodya was to completely remove the "v2" subdirectory
and put everything current in "tools/build/v2/" in the toplevel directory. I
would expect the contents of "tools/build/v2/" in the toplevel directory,
especially the c sources in their new location "engine".

I have scanned the conversion rules but can not find the relocation
information. Can you please take a look at this as this seems gone wrong

The other idea would be to keep the "v2" directory for now and move everything
thing up vai git after the conversion.
