Hi Jeff,

Yes, that boostorg account was created before this discussion by René, Tom
& others, but failed due to make it work due to Boost large sizes and
default Bintray OSS quotas.
We just raised the OSS quota for boostorg, so they can try again.

Please tell me any other possible issue you might have. I think there was
also some interrupted transfers.
To be honest, in my experience that is a typical thing depending on the
network, not the service. I experience failures in AWS S3 transfers more
often than desired too.
But please tell me, and I will handle the issues with the Bintray team.

Yes, JFrog have hired the Conan developers, in fact one of them is me :)
It is possible that we will provide Bintray support for conan packages, as
this is one of the long standing feature request for, as bintray
is much more powerful than
It might take some time. So far, conan has already been integrated with

However, this is an independent effort, I saw Louis Dionne email proposing
github or Bintray (I agree that SourceForge might not be the best
distribution channel), and some responses about github limitations.
So I decided to try to promote this sponsoring for the Boost community
inside JFrog. Other relevant projects, as OSX homebrew did it in the past,
and I thought Boost deserved it too.
