Well, not quite. Let's suppose it's accepted. There is a repo under
boostorg, boostorg/outcome, that hopefully contains headers. Someone issues
a pull request against one of those headers. To incorporate this PR, you
need to backport it into the primary Outcome source, then rerun the
boostification script, then commit the result to the boostorg repo, then
check whether the changes match the PR.


Unless you also have a de-boostification script that would somehow allow you
to merge the PR and then automatically port the changes to the primary repo.
