The Boost formal review of Krystian Stasiowski and Vinnie Falco's
FixedString library will take place
November 25 - December 4, 2019.

This is an early call for you to consider participating in the review.
Feedback and constructive
criciticism from experts and not-so-experts alike is very much welcome.
FixedString being a relatively
small and straightforward library, you will find it very easy to
familiarize yourself with it and
contribute back to the community.

FixedString provides a dynamically resizable string of characters with
compile-time fixed capacity
and contiguous embedded storage in which the characters are placed
within the string object
itself. Its API closely resembles that of std::string.

submitting actual reviews till Nov 25. Read the docs, download/fork the
code, read/run it, maybe

authors, preferrably on
Boost or Boost Users mailing lists.

The FixedString initiative arose from a very lively discussion within
the community:

let me down!
