Hi there,

to get the boost extension movement going how would people feel if we
create a new project on sourceforge called "boost_extension". This
will be a placeholder for all extensions to all boost accepted
libraries. The goal is to have a project structure very similar to
boost. For instance, all extensions have to have tests, documentation,
etc supported by bjam. The folder structure will be the same boost,


There will be a review process as well. Only accepted libraries will
be added. Hopefully enough people will be interested in participating.

As, for releasing, again we would model after boost. There will be a
developing trunk and a release branch. Hopefully within the next
couple of releases we can sync releases with boost.

I know there is a plethora of issues involving such an effort. Please
let me know what you think.
