Subject: [boost] [git][iostreams] Forking without an established merge point

If I look at the develop branch of Boost.Iostreams then GitHub says that
"This branch is 253 commits ahead and 91 commits behind master".
It appears that Boost.Iostreams has not established a merge point
between master and develop as described in:
I am trying to fork Boost.Iostreams to create some patches for it.
Normally I would need to work off the develop branch (or a branch
originating from develop), but if I do so my pull-requests will include
the entire commit history of the component.
If I look at the network graph of Iostreams, it appears that everybody
else branches off the master branch.
How do I proceed?
