I considered proposing myself as a maintainer of Boost.Units for some time,
but considered too inexperienced to do it on my own.
Therefore I am happy that JÃ¼rgen proposed himself and I would like to help
him by being a co-maintainer if it is possible and needed.
As for me, I have been using the library for at least 3 years now and would
like to contribute to it.
For the moment, I mainly proposed small bug fixes to Boost libraries.
