404 GMane link in Boost.FileSystem doc

Boost - Users mailing list
Hi. Over at
https://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_72_0/libs/filesystem/doc/reference.html#path-extension  
(and older version of the doc too) there's a link to
which is no longer so permanent :). According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gmane
the website is no longer available. I guess any GMane link in docs should be updated
to another ML archive. My $0.02. Thanks, --DD

Yes, the link should be updated to:
https://lists.boost.org/Archives/boost/2010/02/162028.php

Created https://github.com/boostorg/filesystem/commit/aaf54ada48b8da2bfc22b87d2890a1696c34eaf7
