Noel did reply to all my questions so far.
Since I'm pretty new to the boost release process, git and bjam, I'm
sure I'll have more questions pretty soon.

Its kinda easy to break things and, given the scarcity of MPI and Graph Parallel testers, I prefer to test the PRs, develop and master branches on internal resources to ensure I dont hit any problems before I push them to github.
