Sorry for the late reply. I was not able to work on this during the last
weeks until now.
I have made now the necessary changes in the repository layout for
boost. At least in a testing branch. I have also merged this changes
into a testing branch of the official boost repo of odeint. I added our
library as a remote (odeint_root) and did
git reset --hard odeint_root/boost_integ
This "destroys" the history. But I think in this case this is not so
bad, since the real history is in the github version instead of the
boost version. It seems to work for me. At least all tests are running.
How do we proceed now? I could merge the changes into the develop
branch. Are the regression tests running somewhere, such that I could
check that my changes are really ok?
