Perhaps my use of the term "mini-review" was confusing.
PFR is ACCEPTed, therefore the formal process was concluded.
After a library is accepted, it typically takes time to adjust the
library to the boost infrastructure,
and to address comments (without addressing the comments, there's no
point requiring detailed reviews).
Antony is transparent regarding the planned changes,
and would like to hear the opinion of those who were interested,
after those changes have been made - in the form of a non-mini-review.
(it is not part of the formal process, so there's no formal name of this event)
