This may be off-topic in this thread, but I think it's a good occasion
to touch this subject.
Why the review is discussed on the boost-users mailing list?
The review manager is supposed to announce review on boost and
boost-announce lists *only*. The results however go also to boost-users.
I don't understand why the review is being conducted on boost-users.
Even worse, it's cross-posted!
Signal to noise ratio on the Boost mailing list has been worse than ever
recently and if we start cross-posting reviews, it's going to become a
chaos impossible to monitor and participate in. I am not trying to
mother to anyone. I simply regret there is lack of self-discipline in
the Community regarding the ml participation.
