I was expecting the style changes to get a review, although in the past
we've been really slow at incorporating style changes. We've gone on the
theory of taking it slow as to not shock the library authors. But I was
thinking of patches for bug fixes and structural changes (like making
the XHTML output be compliant) as things we could put in immediately.

As long as you say ahead of time there's a time out on your patch, it's
fine to commit it. As for a maintainer, no one has emerged as a lead
maintainer. So most likely if you commit enough patches you'll be it by
default. That's been the general take on tool development for Boost in
the past, not just for BoostBook :-)
