Boost-Build :

I probably never told anyone, but I envisioned Boost.Build milestones as:

M1. Abstract targets: projects, main-target, using targets from other
projects, getting build request, filtering/inheriting requirements, etc.

M2. Generators

M3. Toolset implementation. The final result is the ability to compile Boost
with two versions of g++.

My current understanding is that we have this things missing for M1:

1. Implement cross-proejct interaction. The last details ("use-project" rule)
were ironed out just today.

2. Finish target path generation. This is issue 577833 in the Sourceforge

3. (Maybe) Implement variant declaration.

I'm taking #1 now. I also plan to finish some docs of the current state of
affairs that I've started writing today.

I'm not pressing, but it would be really great if #2 is taken by someone
<0.003 wink to David> . I realize that there's a some new code to dig though,
but it's better to do it now then later.

Personally, I think that finishing all the features during the next week is
quite possible. We'd need to clean up things later but from the feature
standpoint, we will be quite ready for the really interesting thing.
