Subject: [boost] RFC: Separating Boost.Python from Boost
From: Stefan Seefeld (stefan_at_[hidden])

as I have mentioned here before, I would very much like to continue the
modularization effort, by fully separating the Boost.Python project from
the rest of Boost.
For avoidance of doubt: my intent is not to remove Boost.Python out of
the Boost organization. Rather, I would like to separate the build and
release processes.
For the sake of keeping the discussion focused, I would like to avoid
getting into too many (technical) details (there already is a related
discussion on the Boost.Build list).
Rather, I would like to know whether people here (and Boost.Python users
in particular) have any particular thoughts about this proposal. Any
strong reasons not to move forward with this ? Things to consider while
doing it ? Etc.

(My hope is that if the operation succeeds, other Boost libraries may
want to do the same, which would help Boost in the long term to become
more manageable.)
