Hi and welcome to the Boost comunity

The open source Boost library is in someway particular as it is seen as
a collection of libraries maintained by different authors. Anyone can
become the author of a library, after a successful review of the
proposed library.

I suggest you to participate in this and the user mailing lists giving
your advice when you consider is pertinent.
Read as much as possible in and in particular

if you want to contribute.

You can find other useful link at the wiki
