Is something like this ok: ?
I assume it should be in master branch/released?
How this info is generated for modules without meta/libraries.json?
Is it also hardcoded somewhere?

Is website/generated/libraries.txt and/or boostorg/libs/maintainers.txt
generated using this metadata?

I'm asking because it seems that this data is duplicated in many places
which is hard to maintain.

Ok, thanks. So for this pull request should be sent.

Wouldn't it be convenient to also define it in modules as metadata?
E.g. also in json file containing a table of pairs:
- Boost version,
- release notes in QBK format
