Is this really the case, and is Boost enforcing this? I believe not:

* feel free to not publish release notes that would be visible on
* feel free to publish whatever documentation and release notes to
whatever server of your own

Please allow me to give you an excerpt from a post of yours, not so long
ago (20.05.16, 17:45):

It is absurd how much ink is wasted on completely meaningless questions
such as where build system artifacts should be placed, as those have
absolutely no impact on end-users.

I would be glad if we can stay in-topic.


PS: I am also *very* glad that the release process is moving on, despite
the recent chaos on the list and organization. I also want to add that
the "people" (which certainly can be counted on my single hand) that are
structuring Boost with their tools, servers, infrastructure in general
are doing a wonderful job.
