I'm interested in simultaneously learning Boost Build (V2) and improving the
documentation. I've found some minor corrections to make and am
anticipating more.

For the first step, I need to be able to build Boost Build from the
repository. I've build it from the tar with, but haven't found
the instructions for building the repository version. It's not in
hacking.txt. Would someone point me to the documentation for that or
describe it for me?

I see that the documentation has its own DTD. I assume it will be build
with the rest of Boost Build, but what do I need to install to build the

After being able to build the repository version, I would like to make minor
changes directly to the repository as that is the least overhead method.
If you have access control: the only portion of the Subversion repository
that I am interested in having write access to at this time is for the
Boost Build documentation. Is this an appropriate forum to request write
access? Is there a better?
