Whoa, it's due by May 8th! May 22nd is the end of the 'iterim period' where
more discussion will occur, Google will approve, etc. See

Still I agree with John and posts to the various SOC boards -- quality of the
proposal is critical. There are already a number of Boost submissions. My
general sense of what I've seen so far is that the authors needed to spend
more time refining the proposals. Of course, they have the ability to
resubmit with updates if they desire.
