Boost Announcement :

Hi all,

Today starts the formal Fast-Track review of the Boost.Functional/Factory library.


Factories are callback mechanisms for constructors, so we provide two
function objects, boost::value_factory and boost::factory, that
encasulate object construction through direct application of the
constructor or operator new, respectively. These templates make other
facilities that operate on function objects (such as standard
algorithms, Boost.Bind, Boost.Function, or Fusion functional adapters)
applicable to constructors.

What to include in Review Comments

Your comments may be brief or lengthy, but basically the Review Manager
needs your evaluation of the library. If you identify problems along
the way, please note if they are minor, serious, or showstoppers.

Here are some questions you might want to answer in your review:

* What is your evaluation of the design?
* What is your evaluation of the implementation?
* What is your evaluation of the documentation?
* What is your evaluation of the potential usefulness of the library?
* Did you try to use the library? With what compiler?
   Did you have any problems?
* How much effort did you put into your evaluation?
   A glance? A quick reading? In-depth study?
* Are you knowledgeable about the problem domain?

And finally, every review should answer this question:

* Do you think the library should be accepted as a Boost library?
   Be sure to say this explicitly so that your other comments
   don't obscure your overall opinion.
