Here are the important points:

1. All comments are appreciated. Even if you don't have the time for in-depth study
of everything, comments on parts of the library are welcome. In particular, if you
are already using logging in your applications and have specialized requirements,
you might want to directly check how the proposed library handles them.

2. The reviews and all comments should be submitted to the developers list,
boost_at_[hidden] and the email should have "[log]" prefix in the subject
to make sure it's not missed. The deadline for reviews is

     23:59, March 17, PST = 2:59, March 18, EST = 7:59 March 18, GMT = 10:59, March 18 MSK

3. Please explicitly state in your review whether the library should be accepted.

        - What is your evaluation of the design?
