Libraries that have not been accepted into Boost may not be labeled Boost.Name without qualification. They are to have a prominent disclaimer at the top of the documentation stating that they have not been accepted, too.

There was discussion, once, of a special logo to use for such libraries, but I don't recall if that was ever finalized.

I also don't recall whether the above was captured on the web site. Perhaps someone else had time to check that.
