When buildbot joined the SFC, one of the requirements (and service!) that SFC had was to help create a board together with all the rules.

Since boost is also a member of the SFC, did it do the same? If so, wouldn't that board already have rules and regulations? Or is that body distinct from the one called "Steering Committee"?
