How about detail/concepts.hpp ? The concept checks should exactly
represent the concepts?

AFAIK all boost libs should try to use boostbook in order to have a
common documentation style. But I did not follow the whole
discussion ... The current state is that a few libs use it. There is no
requirement for that. The documentation guide only states: 'All libs
have to have a HTML documentation.'

actually there is no program called 'boostbook'. There is a 'boost.xml'
style for docbook. So you need something to create an xml description
of the documentation (doxygen, JavaDoc?) and xsl-styles to display it,
e.g. from . The algorithm library uses

For debian linux I have to install docbook, some sgml packages and some
xml libraries. Actually you need something that can combine a XML, XSLT
and DSSSL into something readable.
