Seems like a good ide3a.

I agree. GSoC-ing the project will only take a few minutesand it might potentially benefit both the Boost GSoC 2020application as well as the value and visibility of your lib.
As for not getting dicouraged, I can confirm the meritof that. Some of our GSoC 2013 work just made it fully
into Boost.Math recently. After our preliminary work,it took the expertise of other Boost experts and a bitof time to fully "ripen" the software and get into the flow.
It was very rewarding and I was thankful to the helpof the Bost experts who ultimately pushed that workinto shape for Boost. You might obtain similar long-termsuccess with your lib.
Kind regards, Chris

You may appreciate that, for some libraries, two years is/was not long enough
to release with Boost after the review and acceptance.

Although I'm neither current nor prospect user of Boost.Astronomy
- I just have been observing its activity on Gitter during the GSoC 2019 -
I think it's interesting and quite a unique library with potential to
attract users and contributors.
If there are no formal obstacles, I don't see any problem in GSoC-ing it
if it helps to push its development forward. Especially, seeing your
dedication to keep the development active.
Please, don't get discouraged.
