There are some concerns, actually. For example, our Trac is a bit too slow at
times. As of recent, the amount of spam that hits boost-build mailing list
is going through the rough, presumably due to no filtering. Further, I
don't think it's documented who I am supposed to talk with about those issues.
And even if it were documented, I believe that would be a system administrator
at OSL -- and I would not be comfortable bothering a person who is already
doing us a courtesy.

It probably would be great if Boost had a dedicated server managed by
a couple of folks from the active community.
