Since I am not a native english speaker, please tell me what
"Determine interest" means. Does it mean:
1) Find out by posting to the list if there is any interest for the lib
xy, or
2) prove that you are interested in the boost community by actively taking
part in discussions on the list.

The following three steps sound very good.

Im am curious though what needs to be present at this stage?
Is it necessary to have everything as outlined in the formal review
Since I think I do have something that could be interesting to the common,
but I am in no means sure others will see it this way, it seems a little too
early to take the burden of full blown documentation, bjam'ing and writing
all the tests.
(Also the last three steps turned out to be unexpectedly nontrivial. I
could not even find
information how I can compile the lib as if it already is part of the
boost tree.
So a mentor would be really helpful here.)
