I'd be interested to know, from someone who is better at manipulating trac than me, where things are getting stuck. Is it bugs which aren't even looked at? Patches never get written? Patches never get applied?
I won't be at boostcon, but I would be very happy to lend real help into helping get the bug database under control, as long as that job doesn't mainly involve kicking library maintainers into applying patches.
