The Boost Steering Committee has given the final approval for the
conversion from Subversion to Git, including the modularization of Boost
The Subversion repository will be closed for all changes to all branches,
including the sandbox, Sunday, November 23 2013, 00:00 hours UTC. That's 8
PM Saturday, US East Coast time, and 5 PM US West Coast time.
Please make no svn commits after that time. We will be adding a pre-commit
hook that prevents commits, but please do not wait for that becomes active.
After svn is closed, the conversion will be run one last time, and then
turned off. Then there is a week set aside for final validity checks,
testing, and general scurrying around. When that is done, the boostorg repo
on GitHub will open for business. If everything goes smoothly, it may take
less than a week but if there are glitches it may take longer.
