Subject: [boost] [accumulators] maintainer needed (was: accurate sum accumulator (kahan))

I confess I haven't given this library the attention it needs. It's due
to the fact that I have many competing demands for my time, and also
because I'm not actually a statistician -- Matthias Troyer did that
part, but I know he's busy, too -- so I don't really feel qualified to
make certain changes. This is an uncomfortable position to be in, so I
figured I'd ask for help. So, is there anybody with a mathematical bent
and an interest in Boost.Accumulators who would like to help out with
the backlog of bugs and patches to this library? I would stay on as
assistant maintainer to help with the tricky meta-programming.

I don't think you ever responded to my request to add the needed docs to
the patch, did you?
