It's more that I would impose those requirements on those sending
pull requests if they want them accepted. I help maintain
Boost.Thread, plus quite a few other open source libraries.

And once again, my apologies for earlier. It is no excuse, but that
particular day I had the misfortune of combining codeine and a lot of
cough medicine due to a heavy flu. This affected my mind. I was quite
appalled with myself when I read what I had written to you the next
day, very embarrassing, I was clearly off in a grim imagination land
and had completely underestimated its effects on my wits.

As a token of making good on my earlier behaviours, do feel free to
email me off list to review your pull requests for any problems,
either before or after you submit them. And thank you once again for
making the effort, it is hugely appreciated here.
