What does the process of "handling it over completely" entail ? I really
think Boost needs to define the methodology for this and also have someone
with enough Administrator rights to get this done. I realize that Boost can
not just hand over a library for maintenance without knowing if the
particular person is capable enough both as far as C++ and the library
itself is concerned. But considering how many libraries really need a
maintainer, even if those libraries are very solid themselves and have very
few bugs, I believe Boost really needs to jump on the situation when
someone wishes to maintain a library which either has no maintainer or is
"maintained" as part of CMT. We can not afford to ignore such people in a
sort of laissez faire manner; we need them too much.
