Subject: [boost] More cool free github tooling: https://reviewable.io/

I'm not sure about other libraries, but in Boost.Thread Vicente the
primary maintainer does the lion's share of dealing with pull
requests but he occasionally needs someone else to review a patchset
or a pull request before it can be merged. Github's facilities for
this are okay - you can comment per line of a pull request, and
overall. It works, though one wishes for something more gerrit like.
So enter a new free tool with github integration:
https://reviewable.io/. One click install into your github project.
You now gain an alternative UI for pull requests, one which is much
better than the default Github UI, specifically:
* Per file review gating like gerrit
* Can publish a group of per-line comments as a single thing (and
just one email notification)
* Doesn't hide deleted change history
* Diffs are much better calculated and presented
I've turned it on for AFIO. We'll see how it goes.
