This is at present roughly achievable with the following sequence of
git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/boostorg/boost.git
git submodule update --init tools/boostdep libs/$X
python tools/boostdep/depinst/depinst.py -X test $X
./b2 --prefix=$Y --with-$X install
But that's an entirely different use case. This is
Boost Github -> user
as opposed to
Boost Github -> Boost release -> package manager (apt, conan, vcpkg) ->
Boost list run by bdawes at acm.org, gregod at cs.rpi.edu, cpdaniel at pacbell.net, john at johnmaddock.co.uk
