If the Boost.Outcome repository sources are going to be automatically
"generated" from standalone-Outcome via scripts (currently a Travis
job?) and standalone-Outcome has all code dual licensed under Apache
and BSL, what would that mean for contributions to the Boost.Outcome
library? i.e. Would they have to be contributed to standalone-Outcome
first, under dual license?
