Why would I ever think of doing that, when the review is about Metaparse.

In the original presentation of your library I did find the original
Getting Started. I didn't see any other links from there to the rest of
the documentation.

With your modified presentation of the library the index.html takes me
to your main page with boost::metaparse on top and the rest of the
documentation s I specified above below it. That's a whole lot better IMO.

I apologize for getting so peevish about what others asked you to do and
which you did to improve your library under review. I still intend to
give an updated review of your library with my comments about the
documentation as I now understand it and of your library's
functionality. I assume as a reviewer I can modify my initial review and
my vote of acceptance of a library as long as the review period is still
