I don't think you need to do any mirroring at all, unless you submit it
for review and there's some kind of official policy that all reviews
have to use Boost's SVN sandbox... and even if there is, we might want
to change that policy before your review date. I'd say, sit tight for
now, and ask the Review Wizards when you apply for the review whether
you need to change something.
