The list of maintainers is at boost/libs/maintainers.txt in the Boost
sources on Github, but this list may be out of date. For approving PRs I
actually see the name of Noel Belcourt for the 'graph' library. His
e-mail is kbelco - at - sandia - dot - gov.
We do appear to need a maintainer for 'graph' because the latest
'develop' was never merged to 'master' and there are many PRs against
graph that have been largely ignored. Maybe Noel Belcourt has been too
busy to work with Boost, so I think another maintainer for 'graph' would
be most welcome.
