The Boost Library Incubator (www.blincubator.com
is a web site conceived, designed, and implemented to alleviate the
log-jam of libraries waiting to be reviewed by Boost. It helps new
library submitters through the process, encourages development of an
initial user base, and accumulates feedback in the form of comments,
test results and Boost style reviews.
Boost Steering Committee has voted to recommend using the Boost Library
Incubator as a prelude to getting a library reviewed by Boost. The
Steering Committee recommends libraries currently in the Boost review
queue be added to the Incubator by their developers.
relationship between Boost and the Incubator is purely informal, but
there as several things Boosters can do to help make the Incubator a
success. Authors can submit their libraries and respond to feedback.
Users can experiment with submitted libraries and provide feedback on
their experience. WordPress/php developers can contribute enhancements to the Boost Library Incubator implementation.
The steering committee extends its thanks to Robert Ramey for launching the Boost Library Incubator!
