I have completed mock builds of roughly 70% of the Boost dependent packages in Fedora rawhide as of today. There have been no FTBFS issues related to the upgrade to Boost 1.78.0.

Fesco approved the change proposal last week, I have confidence that this version of Boost is stable enough to proceed with.

I started on it in anger last week. I've been tracking down some breakage in the upstream's build build that was preventing me from getting a successful .rpm build, so I haven't even started to evaluate dependent package breakage. I expect to have a scratch build done by this time tomorrow.

Hey Thomas,

when do you expect to do this? Is there an estimated schedule? I recall some
side tag conflicts between Python and Boost in the past, so we better
coordinate. See our dates in:
