As follow-up to discussion with Adam about how to plan switch to
newer C++ version
I posted these questions below to Boost developer's list.

As you can see in the thread there, Peter Dimov recommended
his excellent article

It is not part of the official Boost documentation, but it was posted
and received the usual Boost bashing ;)
Anyway, I think there is good food for thought.

FWIW, Boost.GIL switched to C++11 before Peter's published
his article, so we just did the switch and announce that from
Boost 1.68 onwards, C++11 is a requirement.

We are planning to switch Boost.Geometry to C++11

Is the following procedure sensible:
1. Warn users on the Boost mailing lists about the planned switch to C++11
2. Make the switch (update the codebase)
3. Release the Boost.Geometry as C++11 e.g. with Boost 1.75
4. Announce on the Boost mailing lists that Boost.Geometry requires C++11

Are there any recommendations or requirements on how we should proceed?
