The final phrase about the domain makes me wonder if you're unaware of
https://lists.boost.org/Archives/boost/ ; it is available to "casual observers",
could be linked to from anywhere, and has Boost "branding". Or do you not
mean the Boost brand when you say "brand recognition"? - do you want a more
recognised brand like github or stackoverflow or google or something?
