I've been pecking away at "Getting Started with Modular Boost Library


I'd appreciate comments and corrections.

One of the questions that came up was how to number releases for individual

Say Boost.System wants to do a release before the next full Boost release
ships. What do I call it? How do I document it? How do I tag it?

Strawman proposal

* Call it "Boost.System 1.55.1 Point Release".

* Document it via the "readme" file that GitHub pesters you to add.
Contents would give the title of the release and the release notes.

* Create a gh-pages branch with the same release notice.

* Tag it 1.55.1
