[A recent post from Dave reminded me of this...]

Okay, let's try being more proactive here :)

What do I need to do to become the maintainer for Boost.Iterator?

I know one thing: As far as I know, I don't have SVN write access to trunk.
And I'm somewhat sketchy on the details of the boost development process,
but it sounds something like "apply changes to trunk branch, wait for tests
to cycle, check test results, and if all looks good, apply changes to
release branch". Any details anyone is willing to provide (either via list
or via personal email) regarding the development process will be much
appreciated. (I'm familiar with SVN as far as add/commit/update is
concerned, but not much more.)
