Yes, I am in doubt if Doxygen documentation is really a necessity for
library users and developers.
After seeing asciidoc and the simple document generation, I would like to
go with asciidoc for Boost.ublas.
I think, using C++ concepts will also help to better read and understand
template code - maybe eliminating the necessity to document on a reference
Thanks Glen.


I would like to know the number of potential mentors for Google Summer of
Docs <>.
For an example, see GSoD-Project-VLC

Short summary of the *timeline*:
Organization deadline is *May 4*.
Technical writer exploration is between *May 11 and Jun 8* - Interested
technical writers discuss project ideas with mentoring organizations
Technical writing projects announcement* August 16, 2020*
Community bonding *August 17 - September 13*
Doc development *September 14, 2020 - November 30*
Project finalization *November 30 - December 5*

How many library contributors and maintainers would like to mentor
professional technical writer?

+1 for Boost.uBlas.

There is also the chance to apply for a long-running project.
Would that be helpful for Boost?
