General Announcements

As always, we need experienced review managers.
Please take a look at the list of libraries in need of managers
and check out their descriptions.
In general review managers are active boost participants,
including library contributors, infrastructure contributors,
and other mailing list participants with a substantial track record
of constructive participation.
If you can serve as review manager for any of them, email us at
Mateusz Loskot (mateusz at loskot dot net) or
John Phillips (johnphillipsithaca at gmail dot com).

We are also suffering from a lack of reviewers. While we all
understand time pressures and the need to complete paying work,
the strength of Boost is based on the detailed and informed reviews
submitted by you. If you are interested in reviewing a library but
won't have time during the review period, you can always prepare your
review ahead of time. No rule says you can only work on a review
during the review period.

A link to this report will be posted to If you would
like us to make any modifications or additions to this report,
please email Mateusz.

The review schedule is an unordered list of the libraries awaiting review.
As such, any library on the schedule can be reviewed once the developer
is ready, a review manager has been secured, and the manager, developer,
and wizards agree on a date to schedule the review.

Best regards,

Mateusz Loskot,
