I submitted a PR ( in
Boost.Build to fix the issue.

I also created an issue for the HOF doc, if the HOF maintainer wants to
fix it so that the getting the doc is not a two-step process of clicking
an extra index.html link.

The final issue was that the index.html for the release showed 1.74
rather than 1.75. This seems to be generated from some sort of template
where '{{version}}' is supposed to be plugged in by the correct version,
but evidently did not work properly. Maybe someone who knows how this is
supposed to work, but evidently did not, can look at it.
