I did create "Merge develop to master" kind of PRs for some libraries.
I'm not sure how convenient it is for other library maintainers, but
even if they prefer to merge themselves, the PR can simply serve as a
reminder, the same way a ticket does. There's no obligation to actually
merge that PR.

Boost.Log is already merged. Its develop and master are the same and are
compatible with both Boost.Parameter develop and master.
