Hi all,

Of the current set of libraries in the review queue, only one lacks a
review manager. It would be great if some boost veteran stepped up
and took on this role for the following library:

Pimpl Pointer
     :Author: Asger Mangaard
     :Review Manager: Need Volunteer

       Boost Sandbox ( under

       The pimpl idiom is widely used to reduce compile times and
       code coupling. It does so by moving private parts of a class
from the
       .hpp file to the .cpp file.
       However, it's implementation can be tricky, and with many
       (especially regarding memory management).
       The pimpl_ptr library is a single header file, implementing a
       policy based smart pointer to greately ease the implementation
of the
       pimpl idiom.

Thank you,

Ron Garcia
