Hi! Welcome to Boost.

You can learn about Boost via You'll want to spend some time following this list to learn about our community. One of the things you'll note, when you do so, is that maintainers are often pressed for time, so bugs can languish. You can help by verifying reported bugs and submitting patches, including documentation patches. (Refer to for more.) You might also want to host a tester (see for more).

That should be enough to get you well on your way.

Thanks for your willingness to participate.
