Subject: [gentoo-dev] Boost maintenance
Date: Thu, 09 Dec 2010 20:21:59
1 A few months ago I spent some time bringing dev-libs/boost up to date
2 because it was blocking some Python issues. Sebastian Luther helped me
3 out (I more or less proxied from his overlay [2]). However, since I
4 have no intrinsic interest in Boost, I have found it hard to find time
5 to keep maintaining it (particularly since it's a pretty large
6 package, and far from my area of expertise). Sebastian also seems
7 slightly less available, though that might be due in part to my lack
8 of interest. In any case, I'm going to remove myself from the
9 maintainer-list. dev-zero is still in there, but AFAICT he hasn't
10 spent any time on it over the past six months or so. If anybody else
11 would like to pick it up (there are a lot of enthousiastic users in
12 bugzilla [1]), that would be swell!
14 Cheers,
