Is this list what somebody (you?) put in the wiki? It'd be
interesting to see who
is available to mentor each item.

Anyway, the "Configure" Boost.Build project caught my eye. Which could be
the requirements for such a tool? I expect it'd need to run natively under
Windows and Unix-based systems, right? Which language would it need to be
written in? Maybe C++ is the obvious answer, but then there is a
"bootstrapping" problem (you might need to configure the tool to build the
tool successfully). Just saying this because it'd be good to have as much
details as possible for each proposed project.

And... would someone be willing to mentor a Boost.Process library? :-)
