For these questions, I'm talking about a prototype Boost library, kept on a Git repository, a non-Git repository (e.g. Subversion or Mercurial), or winging it on the authors' hard drives. But the first version of a new approved library will be copied over to our GitHub site as a new module without transferring any history (if it was from Git or another SCM)? Daryle W.
