At this stage I am still ignorant enough that I probably didn't state
my question clearly, and I'm the one who missed something instead of
I'm mixed up thinking about how bjam creates a map of the dependency
space (or the project space?), and of how it transform an element in
conceptual space onto the location in the physical space.
I'm trying to convert a big project over from our current primitive
build process to a bjam process. Our file structure is as follows:
projN will have sub projects, etc.
The build process I have to work with for now is rooted in
which operates on everything. I don't like that, and want to relocate
it. I'm not sure if I am constrained by bjam conventions in where I
may locate it. Does it have to be at toplevel? and so on.

I checked out the repos and will look at the changes.
I was reading through the online appendix and in
"NOTE: THIS SECTION IS NOT EXPECTED TO BE READ! " and later, " The
remainder of this document is not indended to be read at all. This
will be rearranged in future."
er... Does this mean the section is inaccurate, organized poorly,
and/or merely not a compulsary read?
btw, is it better for me to work from a build made with CVS source instead?
