#13213 closed Bugs (duplicate)

Relative path to submodules should point to boostorg instead of parent repo.

Reported by: evgeni@… Owned by:
Milestone: To Be Determined Component: None
Version: Boost 1.63.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


After forking super project 'boost' and trying to update modules git reports error: It expects sub-projects to be located in parent directory of forked repo. So to build correctly every single sub-project must be forked as well.

The relative path in .gitsubmodules should point to the /boostorg/* organization so sub projects could be updated from original location.

For more details please look at

Since it was also reported to GitHub?, I'm closing this as dup (Trac is read-only now, all new issues should go to GitHub?).
