The about could be more accurately and succinctly stated:

That is the library is rejected.

The effort is not without merit and the author is encouraged to address
the concerns raised by the reviewers and re submit the library.

I followed comments on the review fairly closely. I think that
submitters could improve their chances of success by doing somethings
differently. I've always been forth coming on giving advice to these
authors. Of course, unsolicited advice isn't generally effective, but
its good therapy for those that offer it. In that vain I offer the
youtube video of my presentation at CppCon 2014 "How you can make a
Boost C++ Library". I was sort of stunned by the lack of interest -
only 14 attendees and pretty disappointed by the reception - about
average according to statistics. Oh well, one keeps trying.
