Uh.. given the point of the separate asio package is to be independent
from boost, does it really make sense to join the boost packaging team
in Debian?

It might well make sense - maybe not technically, but from an
organizational perspective. I just want to check.

I've got some signatures, but I'm not sure if any is from a DD. How do
I check? (Email should be signed).

I'm not quite following. What problem are you trying to solve, here?
Want some history of the asio code in your git repo?

Note that I've tried to clean up asio-1.4.1 and resolve existing bugs,
first. However, that didn't work out and caused more problems than it

With Simon, we decided to not care about earlier versions and just
continue with packaging 1.4.8.
