Fellow geometry authors and interested reviewers,

My abstract for gtl has recently been accepted to boostcon. I was unable to put together a geometry panel discussion, however. I am also working on completing documentation for the library by April. I would like the gtl library to be under review during boostcon because I may get the opportunity to meet and talk to some of the reviewers in person. To that end I'd like to ask for volunteers to be review manager and reviewers of the library now so that it isn't a surprise and things can proceed smoothly when the documentation is ready in a few weeks.

I especially want other geometry authors to be aware of my plans and schedule. I have the utmost respect for the authors of the other two serious geometry proposals. It is my hope that we can work together during the review process and after to improve and converge our libraries toward the ideal boost::geometry library that all of us can feel proud of. Eventually it is my hope that algorithms in boost::geometry come for a variety of sources selected based upon quality such that there is no single owner of the library, but rather a community. I look forward to your reviews.
