Subject: [boost] [release] How do you make a library update official?

I just uploaded changes ( and ) to Boost.Rational that fix the two major problems showing up on the regression tests. How do I get them on the official distribution? I know we don't read off the SVN-trunk directly; there's some staging area first. (That's why the shippers occasionally declare a code freeze deadline.) I know we have a "release" branch, but I'm not sure that's still being used.
I want to blaze ahead making tweaks to Boost.Rational, but not if you can't "make official" a non-HEAD change-set. Even if I miss the deadline for these other tweaks, I want the two I just already did to be in Boost 1.55.
