https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/wiki/NewLibFromGit describes "Creating a
new library from an existing Git repository". It seems to cover the case
where the existing git repo isn't in the exact boost branch organizational
The Boost Endian library is ready to be moved to boostorg on GitHub so it
can be tested on develop, checked by release managers, and otherwise
readied to be added to 1.57.0. It is already on GitHub and AFAIK has the
usual boost branch and directory structure.
GitHub has a mechanism to transfer a repo between users or organizations.
This would seem the easiest and most direct approach for boost endian. Is
there any reason not to give it a try, and if it works as advertized then
add it to https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/wiki/NewLibFromGit as an
