I'm confused about the bjam and Boost Build v2. Are there any
information why you develop Boost Build if there is already bjam? It's
not clear to me whats the job of bjam and of Boost Build? Because as I
right understand Boost Build needs bjam to work? If I look in to the
documentation I can't see much easier handling of Boost Build as bjam
is. It looks like Boost Build is just a modified copy.

Please don't get this mail wrong, I only want to show you my view as an
outsider if I look at the available informations about this project.

Are there more informations about this topic?

Best regards
