Thank you, Beman, for all the work you've poured into Boost and C++. Your
contribution is immeasurable. Without it, many of us wouldn't have been
where we are now.

Subject: [boost] Twenty years and time to retire

The idea behind Boost was hatched in March, 1998, and the proposal document
<> was released May 6, 1998. That
makes Boost twenty years old, and makes me twenty years older. It is high
time I retire from Boost; I haven't been able to contribute for some time

Thanks to all of you who made Boost such an overwhelming success in the
past and will drive Boost forward into a bright future!
