My point is that the technical discussions (including the formal reviews)
on the mailing list are a wonderful resource that casual observers have no
way to see because it is locked up behind a mailing list. Boost can't
leverage these discussions by linking to them in a news feed, highlighting
popular discussions, attaching flair based on their participation, and so
on and so forth. Imagine if StackOverflow was a mailing list instead.
Yes I realize that there are mirrors but that is not even close to the same
thing. The Boost organization has no editorial control over a mirror, and
it isn't even under a domain that has brand recognition.
