Severity: normal

The uscan download from sourceforge doesn't download what you expect
for boost.  The reason is that the link provided by the reflector page
[1] is incorrect: it leads to a "snapshot" url [2].  The correct
URL is [3].

Paul Wise indicated [4] that the reflector is a proxy for the RSS
feed and indeed both URLs are present:


My suggestion is that the ones with "snapshots" in the path are simply
filtered out from list displayed by the reflector as these are not
release files.
