Subject: [Boost-build] Bug/Ticket about documentation

        How does anyone enter bug reports for boost build? I tried to find it
out on the wiki/tracker
<>, and just wandered through pages
until I got eaten by a grue. I guess that I need to get a trac account,
but nowhere does it say that's a requirement.

        I eventually guessed that
<> would get me to the new
ticket creation page, but that requires TICKET_CREATE privileges.

        Anyway, my ticket is a minor complaint about documentation. I think
you should note in the documentation that on unix systems, bjam searches
for boost-build.jam in /usr/share/boost-build if BOOST_BUILD_PATH is
set. Under Reference > General Information > Initialization.

        (For that matter, why even have the "General Information" subsection
when the "Initialization" subsubsection is the only thing under it?)
