> We need a new Review Wizard to take Ron's place. The duties include
> coordinating with review managers, scheduling reviews, and updating
> the website accordingly.
> Or as puts it:
> > * When a formal review is requested for a library:
> > ** Approve the review manager based on their participation in the Boost
> community, including the mailing list, previous reviews, and other forums.
> > ** Suggest a schedule, after checking (via private email) availability
> of the review manager and library author.
> > ** Finalize the schedule, once the review manager verifies the library
> is actually ready for review.
> > ** Resolve schedule slips or other issues with review managers and
> submitters.
> > * Maintains a schedule of both past and pending reviews, in the form of
> the Review Schedule web page.
> > * Resolves questions from review managers and library submitters, who
> sometimes want a third opinion on questions such as "Should we extend the
> review period because ...?"
> > * Monitors the general review process, and makes minor adjustments as
> needed, or queries the list about possible major adjustments.
> When we appoint the new Review Wizard, I can grant them access to
> boostorg/website and provide more details about how to update it.
> We would like someone who is a Boost library author or contributor if
> possible.
> Any takers?


I can volunteer and give it a go.
Assuming, of course, I qualify and the community and the committee agrees.
