I was the review manager for 'convert' and it was accepted into Boost.
It has been on 'develop' and been regression tested.

I myself am not sure of the process of moving a library from 'develop'
to 'master' so maybe someone dealing with the boostorg/boost project can

My educated guess is that it would involve a fork of boostorg/boost, a
local 'pull --rebase' from that fork, changes locally that add the
library submodule to 'master' with the necessary commit, a 'push' back
to the fork, and then a pull request so that it shows up at
boostorg/boost and eventually gets merged into the superproject. I
believe part of the local changes are also that status/jamfile.v2 has to
be changed so that the library's tests are added to it.
