Since boost currently encourages a rationale-page I believe a plan/todo-file
and a changelog
would complement this in a very powerful way. One of the biggest benefits
IMHO is that it would
make collaboration and spot-contributions easier since you could just "grab
a task" and give it a try (naively).

On a bigger scale I could imagine a road-map* style document for the entire
boost package.
Where wish-lists, todos and links to already know technology and
implementations etc
would be collected and "distilled".
I do understand that this is kindof the idea of the wiki but sofar I sort-of
miss an "edge" here.
(btw I have seen some interesting mind-map style tools that would let you
graphically express key
ideas etc, that would be really fun to tryout with boost :)

to gather and visualize _visions_ :-)
(IMO one of the coolest things with boost is the unpredictability!)
