Maybe it is possible and polite to check at least the authors which
recently (f.e. last month) committed something.

Boost.Geometry follows <library>/{boost,libs,other} layout where other
contains small programs not fitting within libs. I hope this is
permitted. I'm quite dependent on the current place and so are many
users. I will remove the (now obsolete) ggl folder which is still there.

Maybe it is also possible (now or in the future) to make a distinction
between already-accepted-but-not-yet-incorparted libraries (such as
Boost.Geometry) and proposed libraries.

Finally there is also /sandbox-tags, of which the structure is also not
so clear to me. I've taken the freedom to create a "geometry" folder
there, and below that are our tags.

So the there structure is for me:

And I propose that as a convenient layout.
