There's a good deal published on the web site (see Community).

Outsiders may not commit changes. Adding "[utility]" to your subject would have helped to focus attention on the affected library. Boost.Utility has no single maintainer, so adding that to the subject will attract attention from the interested parties and your asking about the bug reported six months ago will help to increase attention. You might want to add your own details to the Trac report, including whether the proposed patch fixes your problem. (If it did, it should encourage the maintainers to accept the patch.)
