Subject: [Boost-build] Documented targets: minimal, full, extra

In one occasion, Peter Dimov pointed out to me that
there are three documented targets with known names:
minimal, full, extra

1. Where can I find documentation of those?

The does not seem to mention.
I've failed to dig out anything via b2 --help

2. Are those available via Boost.Build or some Boost-specific configuration?

If the latter, shall I forward my questions to Boost ML?

3. What is recommended usage of those targets?

For example, I'm trying to improve/refine/clean-up GIL Jamfiles
and I don't know if the simple and full defined here
are considered local to GIL or global to Boost?
Is that libraries are supposed to define minimal set of tests
for simple target eg. to keep Boost CI-s more responsive?

What shall I read to get those question answered?
