Here are the important points:

1. All comments are appreciated. Even if you don't have the time for in-depth study
of everything, comments on parts of the library are welcome. In particular, if you
are already using logging in your applications and have specialized requirements,
you might want to directly check how the proposed library handles them.

boost_at_[hidden] and the email should have "[xint]" prefix in the subject
to make sure it's not missed. The deadline for reviews is

    10:59, March 12 MSK

3. Please explicitly state in your review whether the library should be accepted.

4. The general review checklist is provided below:

       - What is your evaluation of the design?
       - What is your evaluation of the implementation?
       - What is your evaluation of the documentation?
       - What is your evaluation of the potential usefulness of the library?
       - Did you try to use the library? With what compiler? Did you have any
       - How much effort did you put into your evaluation? A glance? A quick
       reading? In-depth study?
       - Are you knowledgeable about the problem domain?
