Of course the licensing of the website should be BSL licensed. This is
referring to the new boost logo/artwork copyright. The Boost foundation
needs an assignment to enforce its licensing. My big concern at this point
is regarding trust. Do we want to hand over control of the Boost mailing
lists and website to Vinnie? Prior to these new revelations from the C++
Alliance, this wasn't a question as we were deciding only on accepting his
contributions. As I'm putting together a timeline of related events and
discussions I have serious reservations.

And, just to be clear, my opinions are my own. I'm not speaking for the
Boost Foundation here.
