And also do the same for http://boost.org/b2 and http://boost.org/build, if possible?
By transparent I mean the setup described here:
where apache will connect to boostorg.github.io itself, and pass the request over,
as opposed to redirecting the client. I think it's slightly preferable as the
user won't have to remember different domain names.
If that's done, all existing hackery to serve boost.build docs can be disabled.
The destination is already up.
