If you're a library maintainer, yes. The only branches that you must
maintain for system stability are "develop" and "master." However, be
aware that some branches in the Boost super-project repository may be
referencing commits on your branches. It would be better to rename the
branch in question as a nested tag, e.g.
then it will hide, but the commit won't disappear.
Beman, it might make sense for us to make those changes as part of the
Boost list run by bdawes at acm.org, gregod at cs.rpi.edu, cpdaniel at pacbell.net, john at johnmaddock.co.uk
