SourceForge has a Tasks list feature which is now enabled for Boost. See
the "Tasks" entry on the top toolbar at
If you click "Tasks", that should take you to a page listing sub-projects.
There is currently only one sub-project, titled "1.31.0 Release
If you click on that sub-project, you should be able to see (at least) two
tasks, and be able to browse their details.
The plan is to use this feature to actively manage the preparation for
IIUC, anyone should be able to view the list, but only Boost developers can
add to it or modify it.
I've tried to set all developers permissions to be able to add/modify
tasks, but if someone has been missed please let one of the moderators
know. There are also several Boosters who actively help with bug reports,
patches, and the like who may need to be added so they can help with tasks
management. Again, please let a moderator know.
Boost developers should add tasks for themselves if they want other
Boosters, including the release manager, to know that a task needs to be
complete before the release. But only release managers or moderators should
add tasks that others have to complete. A task list isn't wish list of
things you would like to see someone else do; rather it is a list of
specific tasks that a release manager, Boost moderator, or a library's
developers view as a precondition for release.
