Something like this:
git clone git_at_[hidden]:boostorg/hana.git
mkdir build && cd build
cmake --build .
cmake --build . --target check
cmake --build . --target install
This builds, tests, and installs hana. There are various ways to accomplish
this, but the first step is to point cmake to the hana directory.
