I'd rather not, the discussion is already heated enough there I feel.
I just wanted to know where Boost (or other members/maintainers/...)
stand in this to reevaluate my expectations. Being on the other site
(contributor, not maintainer) it puzzled me, that maintainers can simply
ignore changes and actively avoid reviews when doing own changes.

Note that CMT maintained libs are much more like I thought it would
- Changes proposed
- Changes reviewed
- Changes merged
