We had previously chosen Daniel Pfeifer for review manager. He's not a boost
author, but has worked on previous efforts to move boost to cmake. He's also
very knowledgeable about cmake, and we based a lot of our cmake design on what
he outlined in his Effective CMake talk.

What exactly the requirements are to be a review manager, I don't know, so it
would be best to discuss with the review wizards(like Ron Garcia).
