As follow-up to discussion with Adam about how to plan switch to
newer C++ version https://github.com/boostorg/geometry/issues/590
I posted these questions below to Boost developer's list.
As you can see in the thread there, Peter Dimov recommended
his excellent article https://pdimov.github.io/articles/phasing_out_cxx03.html
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.

Subject: [geometry] Planning switch to C++11
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?
