Also strongly opposed. I am now the maintainer of Boost for
Fedora/CentOS/RHEL (Jonathan is transition out of the role). If Boost
discussion moves to some forum that I have to chase down vs. just arriving
alongside the rest of my upstreams (e.g. libstdc++) it's likely to get
missed, so the quality of Fedora's distribution of Boost will likely suffer.
The beauty of email is that
