I've been using Boost for years now and I didn't even know about these
libraries with maintenance issues. And knowing about those issues now
does not deter me from continuing to use Boost - I will simply avoid
the libraries with problems and continue to use the good ones. Can you
provide some evidence that this problem has "damaged" the Boost brand?
