No, merging from submodule:develop to submodule:master is done by the
library developer. Every such merge, per git-flow, is considered a stable
library (submodule) release (not a Boost release). Boost releases and
superproject merges are done by the release managers based on the submodule
master branches. If a submodule never merges to master, the changes to it
will never appear in a Boost release (as was the case in the old SVN days).
