#12033: Boostdep misses some dependent components
  Reporter: edaskel@… | Owner: pdimov

Comment (by edaskel@…):

 I understand. Thanks for considering my request.

 In order to sell clients on having Boost as a dependency it's helpful to
 1) isolate just the libraries they actually need, and 2) treat them as git
 submodules so they can be versioned independently of the primary codebase.
 With an approach based on bcp the code itself is incorporated into the
 client's project, and they must take charge of maintenance and cannot
 easily incorporate upstream fixes. Therefore I have chosen to semi-
 manually generate the dependency list, by starting with the "boostdep"
 output and adding additional libraries identified by compiler errors.

 Would it help for me to make a feature request out of this ticket? Is
 there a more suitable venue? Thanks!
