The boost-consulting CVS was never ahead of the SF public CVS; just
more accessible (fewer communication errors).  We create it by
downloading the *public repository* snapshot, which is only done every
24 hrs.  If the download fails or it happens before they post the
snapshot, it will be behind.  If the SF public CVS is behind, it will
be behind.

The snapshots at http://www.boost-consulting.com/boost.tar.bz2 are
usually only an hour or 2 behind.  I get a few failure notices about
the cvs export command which creates them daily.

It doesn't indicate anything surprising.
