Thanks for this suggestion. I will send the charter to the group after I
announce it on Boost-User.
Although I'm happy to have gmane provide a newsreader interface for this
list (I asked them to), the low-volume, time-sensitive nature of the traffic
on Boost-General doesn't really cry out for a newsreader interface as do the
dev and user lists which are high volume and contain information that will
be valuable for searching for months and even years.
