 I'm reassigning this to Rene as I'd like his feedback below and I can't
 see any way to cc him. I'm not expecting to fix this.

 The link is broken in the main release as well (you can see it in the
 inspect report). Older versions of boost seem to be fine, so you might
 want to do whatever you used to do.

 As you're already changing links in your release script, you could use an
 absolute link in the main boost release and then change to it a relative
 link for the build release.

 At the moment, we can't copy userman.pdf to the location on the site (I
 assume that's what you meant) as the documentation is served from the
 release zip file. It's possible to change htaccess to check for files
 before running php to get the page. Rene, does that sound okay to you?
 It's not very nice to have special cases, but that seems to be the least
 problematic way to me.

 Incidentally, you should have as much access to the site as I have.
 Everything I do is through subversion.
