Subject: [boost] Review request for variant2, review manager wanted

I'd like to request a formal Boost review for the Variant2 library,
https://github.com/pdimov/variant2. Variant2 contains an implementation of a
variant<T...> type that is an almost conforming std::variant, except it
doesn't require C++17 and supports C++11 and above.
It's also never valueless and has a few other extensions.
The same library also contains an expected<T, E...> type, which is like the
proposed std::expected<T, E>, but supports more than one error type.
expected<> is not yet production-ready and has no test suite, but I will
finish it if the library is accepted.
The documentation for the variant<T...> class is at
If anyone would like to step forward to manage the review, please do.
