I'd like to know the current state of the release. What's left to be done? Any
blockers? Is there anything I can do to help it?

It's starting to feel like the old days circa 1.34, I wouldn't like to see
that happen again. If there is no Boost release in the forseeable future,
should the library authors initiate their library independent releases?
