Failed to propose synonym: Version specific synonyms can only be created by moderators (click on this box to dismiss)
b2 is the new name for Boost.Build's engine and
bjam is the old one. The renaming was done in Boost 1.47 release:
The official name of Boost.Build executable was changed to b2. The bootstrap scripts create a copy with the old name bjam to prevent third-party build scripts from failing.
Quoted from http://www.boost.org/users/history/version_1_47_0.html, under "Build System"
What can be done to avoid
b2 being considered a version specific synonym by the software? Or, shall I ask moderators to add
b2 as a synonym; if so whom/where do I ask?
