git affects the developer workflow, but that thread was about creating
modular releases and downloads, which is a different goal and has a
different set of problems to solve. That's what that thread was about. I
didn't see any desire to have that as a goal in the thread.
Git doesn't affect users.
Before and after transition to git, they download all-of-boost.zip from the
Boost list run by bdawes at acm.org, gregod at cs.rpi.edu, cpdaniel at pacbell.net, john at johnmaddock.co.uk
