For Boost-Announce I think we should have something like this:

Boost has formed a new mailing list called "Boost-Users" specifically

libraries, but is on putting them to work. You can subscribe to this
list at or by sending email to

A more press-release-y version, if we have a place to use it, would be:

C++ Boosters announce an new forum for users of the Boost Libraries!

Boost-Users is a forum for discussion of issues related to using the
libraries available at These are free, peer-reviewed,
portable C++ source libraries.

The focus of the forum is to help users to leverage these libraries in
their own development projects. Users can join this forum at or by sending email to
