I *really* like Boost Jam (BBv2). I am using it for a project at work,
and it is really cool and has helped us prototype stuff very quickly.
I use some of the newer features that I and Alexander Kabaev have contributed
( SHELL, multiple directory source-location) quite heavily for
a huge C++ project.

For my project I want to write a document as to what version of BBv2
to use. I have a few questions:

- is there going to be a next milestone/snapshot release of BBv2,
independent of the next release of Boost? It's easier for me
to say use XXX milestone version or higher, rather than writing a document
telling people to get the latest stuff from CVS.

- does anyone have experience with packaging BBv2 in something like an RPM?
I basically want to have an RPM which installs BBv2 in such a way
that the only thing they need is to have "bjam" in their PATH...
no other environment variables. I am comfortable with doing
custom patches to user-config.jam, etc. before creating the final RPM package
