Me too.

I'm not affiliated to either organization, and I need to apologize for
not yet having found the time to test drive the proposed new website,
but if everything is under the BSL then strictly IMO it is no different
to any other contribution to Boost.  Indeed, I would actually *expect*
any new website code to be BSL licensed?

Best, John.
