+ Maintainer's Rights and Responsibilities</h2>
+ <p>By submitting a library to boost, you accept responsibility
+ for maintaining your library or finding a qualified volunteer
+ to serve as maintainer. You must be willing to put your library
+ and documentation under a Boost-compatible license.</p>
+ <p>You will be expected to respond to reasonable bug reports
+ and questions in a timely manner and to participate as needed
+ in discussions of your library on the boost mailing lists.</p>
+ <p>You are free to change your library in any way you wish, and
+ you are encouraged to actively make improvements. However, peer
+ review is an important part of the Boost process and as such
+ you are also encouraged to get feedback from the boost
+ community before making substantial changes to the interface of
+ an accepted library.</p>
+ <p>If at some point you no longer wish to serve as maintainer
+ of your library, it is your responsibility to make this known
+ to the boost community and to find another individual to take
+ your place.</p>
