Hi Greg, the rule for being a Review Manager is that such person has

We have an individual (Greg) willing to manage the review, and this
certainly does not happen for every library entering the review queue, so it
seems counterproductive to discourage Greg's participation. Since Greg does
not (yet?) have a library committed to boost, perhaps he can act as a sort
of assistant review manager under the guide of one or more boost
contributors. Greg would have usual responsibilities of following the
review and aggregating the submitted review emails into a coherent review
summary, which the guiding boost contributors would approve or amend.

Just a suggestion; I, too, do not have a library committed to boost, so I
tend to think my opinion naturally carries less weight.
