I find it more like it's not really that useful a feature, accepting
tickets that is, for Boost as there is small to no overlap in working in
bugs. It's more useful for components that have multiple people working
on them as a way to coordinate who works on tickets. For example I've
used it to tell Volodya that I'm working on some tickets for Boost
Build/bjam. But it doesn't really make much sense, as a single author,
to tell yourself you are working on a ticket.
