The CMT will operate on a "propose and review" process, where a change goes
through the following phases.

   1. Someone decides to work on a bug/test failure/etc and announces this
   on the mailing list.

Will the CMT have it's own mailing list or use boost-devel? In the case of
a separate mailing list, you should add it to Boost's mailing list web page
and have a link to it. If it's going to be boost-devel, we should probably
have a standardized subject line tag to make it easy to filter out the
non-CMT related mail, e.g.

[boost][cmt] <subject line>

or maybe just use the CMT libraries name, e.g.

[boost][signals] <subject line>

or maybe a combination, e.g.

[boost][cmt][signals] <subject line>

   1. Discussion may ensue on the ML about the best way to proceed.
   2. The code/tests/docs are developed and a pull request is made (on the
   3. The request is reviewed by other members of the list. (repeat steps 3
   and 4 as necessary)
   4. The request is committed to the "develop" branch by a CMT manager who
   notifies the person who made the pull request.

Just to close the loop...

   1. The person who made the pull request is responsible for verifying all
   the tests passed, and notifying the CMT manager when it is ready to be
   merged to "master"
