I personally hope none of the suggestions 1, 2, 3, or 4, are
implemented. I really worry about this desire to bring monetary value
or payment into the Boost review process.
I also have some concerns when I see the same person put forward
similar ideas that all revolve around paying or hiring individuals.
Niall, I understand you have good intentions, and I (like many others)
appreciate your administration of GSOC, but the repetition of these
ideas looks frighteningly like you want to address any employment or
financial needs that you have by getting Boost to hire you for more
things. Maybe I'm drawing too many conclusions from your blog
I'm curious: The libraries that too niche or esoteric for any review
manager to be interested (or reviewers to come forward) - to which
libraries are you referring?
In any case, I look forward to the mechanics of Boost being improved.
I hope they're improved by better means that do not involve solving
someone's employment needs.
