I'm proposing to relax the review requirements for those libraries. Include
them even if the Boost feedback was "need more work". Simplify the review

We should give users and library authors a simple way to meet and interact.
Boost is a perfect platform for establishing existing practice and ensuring
library quality. Let's not loose it because of the exhausting review
process that requires a lot of time and scares of some of the authors. If
the library accepted into C++ or Library Fundamentals - then it was already

Another idea: how about dropping the "review manager" requirement? Allow
library author to manage the review and require a separate manager only if
the votes for library inclusion are doubtful or there's less than N votes.
