That's how I see it, yes. This has the advantage of not requiring any
changes to the test script, apart from teaching it to use git instead of

Both seem fine to me, so it would be up to the release managers to state a
preference for one or the other.

We'll also need a procedure for the case in which a submodule maintainer is
unresponsive or missing. The submodule organization differs from the old SVN
world in that the superproject can only refer to a sumbodule commit, so the
superproject release branch can't, for example, revert a problematic commit
from a submodule.

In this case, a release manager would have to create a release branch in the
submodule as well, fix things there, and then point boostorg:master to that
