It has been 'taken over' around 4-5 years ago by Stefan.
I joined the efforts around 4 years ago.
We started the C++11 modernisation overhaul and new tests overhaul.
The GSoC-s brought some fresh code over last years,
and a couple of 'approved' committers too.
Lately, there have been lots of contributions from a few new
developers who joined the GIL and have greatly helped to release
lots of features and fixes with Boost 1.80
There are plans for more!

The metadata [1] contains just a formal list of so called maintainers,
but the Acknowledgements sections in the [2]
give much more complete list of contributors.
