Perhaps the Boost web site should add a gallery of commercial and
non-commercial C++ projects that are using the Boost libraries. I think it
might reduce new adopters' [unfounded] fears that the library might not be
adequately tested or maintained. Plus I think it could bolster Boost
developers' enthusiasm to know their contributions are helping others. :-)
