No, we're longer using sourceforge. We have a space in our subversion
repository for sandbox development, you can have a look at:

But it's a bit chaotic. And I expect there are people working on
potential boost libraries in other places.

Here's a list of everyone with a subversion account on the new server:

Which is 117 accounts, this includes a few duplicate accounts and the
'no-maintainer' user so the number of people will be a little smaller.
Some accounts only have write access to the sandbox area. The total
number of 'official' boost developers is pretty small, considering the
size of the project, as most libraries are maintained by just one or
two developers. But we do receive patches from our users, so I don't
know how large the entire development community is.

Hope that helps,
