The formal review period for Jeff Garland's date and time library ended
three months ago, back on April 24.

As the manager, I was supposed to announce the results of the review,
but I haven't done it yet.

The date and time library is accepted into Boost.

Comments during the review period indicated these areas that need to be

     - clearer separation between internals and public parts of the
     - more documentation

There were many who had concerns that this library deals with dates and
times outside the framework of time zones. This objection was enough
for some to vote against inclusion in Boost. But there was enough
consensus among others that the library was suitable for Boost.

Congratulations, Jeff!
