Great stuff Patric. Layout is very good on all of them.
I think it is good to use the red color where attention to that part is
desired. This does not necessarily apply to the "using" and "powered by"
variants, hence blue may be better there. Just my opinion.
Other than that - the only thing that make me unhappy is, as you discuss in a
different post, the need to remove "for" in "under construction for" variant.
It is kind of saying all of boost is under construction - not good!
I do not know if two lines are any good for layout, so what about looking for
alternative texts first:
we have that, can be used but not necessarily the same meaning as it indicate
design is completed.
"in work for"
do not know if i like that
"proposal sketch for"
"library sketch for"
"proposal draft for"
"library draft for"
"preliminary proposal for"
"preliminary library for"
too long ~~~
If we go with two lines, the text is much simpler -- I suggest:
---- used for request for interest submission ---- preliminary proposal for boost c++ libraries ---- used for versions prior to submission for review ---- proposal for boost c++ libraries ---- used for submission for review ---- accepted for boost c++ libraries ---- may be used for submission between accept and first release ---- boost c++ libraries ---- may be used by accepted submissions shall be for boost releases -- Bjørn
