Subject: [boost] [GSoC] Bits and Ints

I am keen on working on the Bits and Ints project. However, I would be glad
if someone could answer my queries.

In the project description, the second line says:
"Compressed value array and vector (like vector<bool> but also for multi-bit

1) When we are talking of Compressed Value Array, are we looking at a
functionality similar to the Deflater() class in Java, or something like Run
Length Encoding / Delta Encoding?

2) I am also not sure if I get what is meant by "but also for multi-bit
values", do you mean multi-dimensional bit-fields?

3) Can we discuss the proposal-drafts on the mailing list, even after the
application time frame begins (March 29, 2010, 19:00 UTC)?

Warm Regards,
Gaurav Menghani
