Subject: [boost] [Range] Proposal: a sub-maintainer of Boost.Range

Dear Neil,
Dear Nate,

First I'd like to say thank you for your library, Neil. It is a very
useful library and it's great fun to writing codes with range adaptors.
Boost.Range is one of the most important Boost libraries that are not yet
added to the Standard.

I know that Neil has made an effort to make time for developing the
library, but recently making time for development seems difficult. And
there are several open tickets of trivial bugs (e.g. #5603, #6110).

Considering this situation, I'd like to make a proposal about

  ** Adding a sub-maintainer to Boost.Range **

This reduces author's maintenance burden and also helps
more stable development of the library.

I recommend Nathan Ridge as a sub-maintainer of Boost.Range.
His knowledge, experiences and contribution to Boost are great.
If both of Neil and Nate accept the proposal, and if Nate needs
some support for the start-up, I'll try my best to support him.
I also believe that Jeff will also support him ;)

Neil, what do you think about this proposal?
I would appreciate and respect any of your reply.

Yours sincerely,
