Boost :

My own suggestions for criteria:

 - Older and better tested libraries are to be preferred.
 - Separate things should be submitted separately. The
   committee shouldn't have to decide whether it wants
   graph algorithms in order to decide whether it wants
   smart pointers.
 - Dependencies should be minimized. Basic pieces of
   infrastructure should be submitted first.
 - And, of course, the most obvious criterion: pieces
   that seem to be of broad general interest should be
   submitted first.

The two pieces that immediately come to mind for me are
smart pointers and integer types.
