Subject: [Boost-build] Unable to checkout libs/context submodule from Boost git repo
Date: 2017-06-06 16:24:17
I'm trying to build Boost from the git repo https://github.com/boostorg and more specifically, this commit:
I am compiling on Windows 7 x64 with VS 2015. It was working well until a few days ago.
Now, I get an error message when cloning the submodule 'libs/context'.
1> Cloning into 'libs/context'...
1>CUSTOMBUILD : error : no such remote ref 2ddbe4c26813134cdf8f0d169f70cd85f44b637b
1> Fetched in submodule path 'libs/context', but it did not contain 2ddbe4c26813134cdf8f0d169f70cd85f44b637b. Direct fetching of that commit failed.
1> CMake Error at Boost-prefix/tmp/Boost-gitclone.cmake:83 (message):

I checked, and the commit 2ddbe4c26813134cdf8f0d169f70cd85f44b637b exists in libs/context submodule (https://github.com/boostorg/context/commit/2ddbe), so I don't understand why it cannot find it anymore.
If someone can help me, that would be great.
