In the interests of reducing pain: I recommend against using those steps.

I wrote that description while I was still getting a handle on how Boost
development works and how git would be used to support it. At the time,
I assumed develop branches were for module-specific enhancements and
remained decoupled from other libraries until they had reached a
releasable state and were merged to master. I now understand that daily
Boost integration is done with develop branches, so the git update steps
that involve a rebase are inappropriate.
