Why do you say the author of Boost.Move is taking his time? I though the library was ready and waiting/looking for review managers volunters.

I would not wait until the libraries are in trunk for a review. I will just plan the review of Boost.Task after the review of Boost.Move and Boost.Fiber.

When I raised this discussion I expected that some review managers would volunter for these libraries, so I could planify my own. For the moment this has not been the case. :(
