This is a great effort.
I'm not sure if the following fits in, but a big 'concern'/'issue' is the
lack of follow up for older libraries that have been accepted and whose
author(s) is not available any more. For instance, evolving existing
libraries to c++1? features would be great for a number of libs(multi_array
for instance)....
Can this incubator facilitate reporting availability of author, and/or
taking over by new volunteer developers?
