Dear Community,

I'd like to formalize what has been known to many for some time now and
request the formal review of Metal, a modern C++14 library designed to make
template metaprogramming intuitive and effectively replace Boost.MPL.
Klemens Morgenstern has kindly offered to manage the review process.

The library is available on github at

The full documentation is available online at

Up to date benchmarks are uploaded daily to

Great effort has been put into making Metal as portable to different
compilers as possible. Currently, the following compilers are tested in
continuous integration using Travis and Appveyor:

* GCC 4.7 and above
* Clang 3.4 and above
* Xcode 6.4 and above
* Visual Studio 14 (2015) and above
* MinGW 5 and above

Complying with the new Boost policy, I'd like to kindly request those
interested in seeing Metal in boost to take a look at it and endorse this
request for formal review.
