I think June 28th is out of the question at this point. I hope to
have the release done a week or so before July 28th, though, say July
21. If we start today, that gives us a month or so.

There's going to be some disruption when Aleksey moves the mplbook
branch of MPL over to the trunk. In many ways the code is
backwards-compatible, but significant elements have been redesigned
during the writing of the book. I know he has some porting work to
older compilers to do before we can make that move, though, so I
don't know when it'll happen.

If there are any accepted Boost libraries that people can be ready to
add to CVS soon, they should do so as soon as possible, so we have as
much time as possible to shake out the issues. Incidentally, we ought
to think about ways to encourage newly-accepted libraries to be added
well in advance of an upcoming release, to amortize the problems.
