Subject: [boost] Superproject 1.55.0 tags incorrect for libs/uuid?

Someone reported a discrepancy in boost trac that needs to be investigated
by folks on the superproject team. What is claimed is that the
superproject tag for boost-1.55 contains commit id
8c395a888c2d77bdc91e956ef24a07c0c87cdd24 for uuid, however this commit id
does not exist. The tag id in the boost/uuid repository points to commit

I would have opened up a github issue on the superproject to track this and
resolve it, however the "issues" section is not activated for the

Instructions given to reproduce the issue are as follows:

git clone
cd boost
git submodule init libs/uuid
git checkout boost-1.55.0
git submodule update libs/uuid

and the last step will fail with:
fatal: reference is not a tree: 8c395a888c2d77bdc91e956ef24a07c0c87cdd24
Unable to checkout '8c395a888c2d77bdc91e956ef24a07c0c87cdd24' in submodule
path 'libs/uuid'
