The Boost Developers mailing list is high-volume, and many people just scan the subject lines for bracketed keywords that are relevant to them. It's easier to scan for bracketed keywords than to read entire subject lines. The overhead for you to add the keyword is negligible, so I really don't see any reason not to do it. Regards, Nate
