I've been trying to involve the community for several months now,
offering opportunities to weigh in on design decisions, provide
feedback on pull requests, perform code reviews on pending merges. The
response has been, to put it nicely, minimal.

In particular I have not heard from anyone involved in the other
proposed libraries such as Boost.Http or cpp-netlib except some
initial contacts in early 2016.
