FWIW I searched the queue, made efforts to track down the authors
and sent them specific invitations to submit information on their
libraries to the incubator. The majority complied those libraries
are in the incubator right now.

Requirements for the incubator where designed to reflect those of
boost. Personally, I agree with the above that the current
requirements as far as testing is concerned are appropriate.
