[bjam] [build] Documentation for 1.69

Boost - Dev mailing list
Hi, everyone!

Will the documentation for Boost.BJam and Boost.Build be included in the
release of Boost 1.69?

Hmm.. I should already be in the release. But I tried browsing to it on the
master doc preview and it's not there :-(

It has never been there in past releases from the main index.html page.
I brought this up before and it was ignored.

:-( Sorry about that, totally my fault for either ignoring it or not
noticing it.

I don't see it in:

https://github.com/boostorg/website/issues

If we don't record these things, and instead just put them on the mailing
list, the
likelihood they will not be completed is much higher.

Are we talking about https://boostorg.github.io/build/?

It doesn't seem to be part of the release and can be found on the
right panel under "Tools" on the
https://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_68_0/ page (which, I assume, will
look similarly when 1.69 is out).

It is not really a website/webpage issue but a distribution issue. The
distribution has an index.html, which gives the doc for the
distribution, and the link in the doc for the Tool Boost.Build never
actually exists.

I mentioned this on a prior post but nobody responded so I did not push
the issue further. I am glad someone else has finally mentioned this
again and others now realize it.

This index.html? <https://github.com/boostorg/boost/blob/master/index.html>
Or some other one?

This <https://github.com/boostorg/boost/pull/218> should fix it. But We'll
have to wait until the master branch is open again before it makes it to
the release.
