I would disagree here. There is no reason people can't start using it
now. In fact, it's much easier to get a library accepted if people have
already started to depend on it.

I don't think that there is a requirement that boost build be supported
in order to review a library.

I don't think it's necessary to remove CMake support. No reason you
can't leave it in and have both CMake and Boost Build support.

Picking a nit here. The review manager is under no obligation to weigh
"votes" equally. So I think it would be better if we used the word
"recommendation" rather than vote.

The items listed in do not
represent any official boost policy nor have they been discussed such
that they represent any consensus. So though they may be relevant to
Nail's recommendation, they may not be relevant to anyone else's.
