I would think there should be some interest in this. I am not sure why
there is no response on the list. I added [Graph] [GSoC-2014] to your
header to see if that catches more attention.

According to
Boost.Graph author was Jeremy Siek and a University of Notre Dame team;
It is now maintained by Andrew Sutton and Jeremiah Willcock. They would
most likely be the natural people to discuss this with. It may help if
you can post links to or attach any project information, source code and
test result, and a draft proposal for GSoC.

As far as GSoC I think you a written proposal and a mentor that can take
on the task. I do not know if a mentor is available for this proposal.
You probably should check that first. If you have not already done so,
check out
