Boost Library Incubator

Boost has been enormously successful, but is becoming a victim of it's own success. It’s getting bogged down:a
  • Libraries are in the review queue for ages.
  • It’s hard to find review managers.
  • Libraries don't get enough reviews.
  • Some libraries are left without a maintainer.
  • Library documentation is not nearly good enoug
  • Boost is getting larger and hard to manage and deploy.
  • Some libraries become obsolete and there is no way to deprecate them.

BUT, more than ever, C++ needs more and better libraries!!!

I've distilled my ideas for addressing these problems in a website: Boost Library Incubator (www.blincubator.com). I'll walk through the website showing how it addresses the above mentioned problems. I hope this will serve as a basis for ideas for the near term enhancement and evolution of Boost. I expect a lot of spirited audience participation here!
