Have you thought about using the boost developers and users mailing list to

get comments posted on bli?

You could just run a script on a webserver that polls emails in the mailinglist

and filters out those with a tag that contains the name of a library on the incubator in the title,

which it then posts under said library as an anonymous comment, or a comment

under the name of the poster, if he gives his ok in the mail (not the title)

with a tag like [PostMyName] or [Name=”Pseudonym”].

The idea is to make commenting easier and less awkward by embedding it in the

commenting and discussion framework boost developers and users already use,

the mailing list.
