I'd like to see only the bare-minimum library+tool documentation in
Boost releases. All of the other content on the web site, from our
various policies to news items and history, should be on the web
site, only.

In a (my) perfect world, all library and tool documentation would go
through the Quickbook/BoostBook documentation tool-chain and that's
all that would go into the releases. Everything else would be part of
the web site alone.
