Thanks for all answers. I think this will work and be useful for many
However, our library (GGL) is quite large (also compared to other
libraries), has several sub-components and, preparing for the review,
will have an own library-specific roadmap and milestones (indeed one of
them will be review). We will use those internally, and for the users we
already have, for bugs, tasks and wishes.
We now realize that it, at this moment, is not convenient to fit all
these into the Boost trac.
