Everything can be looked at in the original SVN where GGL got developed. It
will be added to the Boost sandbox SVN before the review (actually this
week), so everybody will be able to see what's reviewed. Even more, this
library has been presented for preliminary review on this list before and
we've had lots of discussions already. FWIW, the documentation is still
available at the old site if you can't wait until it's 'properly' added to
Boost sandbox SVN.

Based on this (and certainly rom looking at the library itself) I accepted
to manage the library review.

Moreover, Barends email was a request only, not the announcement of the
actual review (which will happen in November, BTW).
