Boost :

Mini-reviews would be very useful. I’m shur that each
boost developer/user could contribute a few small,
useful algorithms. It would be a great way to
increase the level of participation by developers who
want to contribute but don’t have the time to write a
complete library.

To get things started, as Review Manager, I could
start by collecting submissions by other boost members
and present them to the group monthly or bi-monthly.
We could call this the Monthly Boost Algorithms
review. (I have at-least ten algorithms that I could
contribute for consideration for the first few

We should also discuss to where to place the
algorithms /code within the boost namespace.

I could create a document that lists all the
algorithms under consideration with a small summary.
The boost members could than accept/reject each
algorithm and offer suggestions.

More to follow in the next few day…
Any thoughts?

present in STL I propose to push them in
boost/algorithm.hpp (or under
boost/algorithm). I remember there was a discussion
already about these

This wouldn't include range / container traits (as
Thorsten Ottosen or John Torjo are doing) since it's a
much bigger scope, but for one or two functions, a
single header, it seems an overkill to have a review.
Can we have an Algorithms Review Manager under the
Review Manager (as he see fits to forward requests)
for the subspace boost::algorithm?
