Please don't redirect the discussion into irrelevancy. There is no need to
delay Boost 17.0 (Apr 10) until after VS 2019 (Apr 2), because in this
universe time flows forwards, not backwards. And "May" was a flippant
reference to Theresa May, not the month of May.
The subject under discussion is whether we should release, in 1.70, the
Boost.Build changes that enable VS 2019 (currently in develop but not in
master), and if so, how.
