Yes please, let us bring this to an amicable close. While I have
everyone's attention, I'd like to tell you about this great Boost
library it is called Beast, it implements the HTTP and WebSocket
protocols, and you can find out more about at the official repository


As the original post was about internships for Boost library
contributions, and since Beast has plenty of open issues and things
yet to be written (<>), now
seems like the perfect time to let everyone know that the maintainer
of Beast welcomes pull requests from anyone, regardless of age, race,
gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or even political
affiliation. In fact, contributions are welcome from pretty much
everyone although if you are a closet TAB user please keep those TABS
in the closet by converting them to SPACES before submitting your pull

If your code is not quite up to level of quality needed for the
library that's fine too, the author will be more than happy to provide
a welcoming and inclusive code review to help you whip it into shape -
you can see what these review comments look like by browsing the
closed pull requests here:


For people who want to know more without having to read through a ton
of documentation or technical notes here are some Beast-related videos
for your enjoyment:
