Sometimes nagging the library maintainers directly has been known to
help. But please keep in mind that most of us are volunteers here with
other lives and other priorities. Please be patient.

If you can't wait, you have 2 choices:

1) Create your own clone of the git mirror and apply your patches there.
You'll be responsible for resolving future merge conflicts. Please don't
claim such a patched repo is an official boost release since the patches
have not been vetted by boost maintainers. This is currently what the
users of the Boost.CMake build system are doing.

2) Professionally contract with BoostPro (see sig) to get your patches
in, maintained and tested.
