Subject: [Boost-build] Project and jamfile hierarchies
From: Edward Diener (eldiener_at_[hidden])

I have jamfiles in a jamfile hierarchy of directories, with the
top-level directory having a jamroot.jam. If a project in a jamfile at a
lower level of the hierarchy has a different id than a project in a
higher level of the hierarchy, does the lower level project still
inherit attributes, contstants, and rules from its parent project ?

What happens when two jamfiles in a jamfile hierarchy are given the same
project id ? Is this an error, or does it have some use within Boost Build ?
