Right. To be clear, this list *is* an appropriate channel for raising issues, suggesting fixes, etc., for Boost libraries. Boost.Asio, like Boost.Spirit, is unusual in that it has a separate mailing list and support mechanism. That doesn't mean posts here are out of place, just that you'll often be redirected elsewhere for those libraries.
