Yes. I'm not making any statement about the value of the contributions of an
individual or group of individuals to Boost (in particular, I'm not trying
to diminish anyone's contribution). I'm stating that some people have a
biased view that is not shared by the majority of people using Boost, and
this group of people is over represented on this list. If we're not careful
about that, we could make decisions that are bad for our users (and I think
we sometimes do).
