Just to clarify, would Mariano apply to Boost or Google as the mentoring org
in this case? I suspect the answer is that it could be either way, except
that you aren't a Boost mentor so any help you give would be 'unofficial' if
the work was done thru Boost.
As for the project, I wonder if we should consider a project that has the
specific intent to bring the library completed, up to Boost standards, and
reviewed within the SoC time period. I don't know if that's feasible (haven't
looked at the lib), but I imagine we could make review queue accommodation's.
It would be something of a hybrid in that it wouldn't be entirely the work
of the Mariano, but it might be a different approach to getting SoC projects
into Boost faster. We have the BigDecimal library in the sandbox which I
believe could similarly be picked up, finished off and submitted in short order.
