Repost of a snippet of Doug Gregor's original announcement of this list
and call for volunteers:

> A small group of volunteers has been working on a new build system for
> Boost based on CMake, a cross-platform, open-source build system. We
> have reached the point where our core build system has become
> relatively stable, and we are requesting volunteers to help us improve
> the build system further by improving the documentation, implementing
> new features, porting the system to other platforms, etc. We are most
> interested in volunteers who are:
> * Willing to learn the CMake build system and the Boost-specific
> macros we have built for CMake
> * Interested in the technical challenges of building, testing, and
> deploying Boost
> * Able to test on a variety of platforms and compilers
> * Willing to write as much documentation as code (or more!)
> * Unwilling to participate in build-system flame wars
> Anyone interested in joining this effort should read about CMake and
> our CMake-based build system for Boost (links below), then join the
> Boost-CMake mailing list (also below).
