every addition, removal, or transition of a package in queue.cppget.org is
tracked in this git repository. Note, however, that old history may be trimmed
from time to time.
+The queue recreates a subset of the public repository sections in order to
+mirror the availability of the prerequisite packages. In other words, we don't
+want a queued stable package to resolve its dependencies from the queued alpha
+package. The section structure is as follows, vertical arrows are complements
+while horizontal -- prerequisites.
