It appears that continuous integration in boost is a failure. CI is
supposed to make it easier to make changes (it checks that your
modifications don't break stuff). However, it seems that it is actually
preventing people from touching anything.

Not quite trolling, this seems like an argument to disable CI (or at least
change its configuration significantly), not to avoid making the source

(for the debian boost packages, I was hoping that the election of a new
DPL would help relax the requirements a bit...)
