In short, if you want to write a GIL extension please choose a hosting
site for it (SourceForge, Google code). You are responsible for updating
your extension to the latest version of GIL, documenting it, extending
it, maintaining it, etc. If you want to add it to Boost, you will have
to go through the standard Boost review process.
We will be happy to put pointers to all GIL extensions off GIL's web
site so that there is a single place to go if you want to find a GIL

The review covered the core and the two extensions that are distributed
with it - I/O and dynamic_image. It did not cover the numeric extension.
