Default Boost maintenance

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

Cheers,

Dirkjan

Hi Dirkjan,

Few of my packages depend on boost therefore I don't want to see this
package rotten on the tree. However, I do not have the hardware to
perform any kind of build testing to this package because it requires a
significant amount of resources during compilation phase. I will add
myself on metadata.xml but I will try to find a couple of users to help
me maintain it and become proxy maintainer for them.

Thanks for letting us know

Regards,

I use boost frequently and have a machine that can compile it quickly. Let me know if you want help. Boost is an important package to me. I will have free time after the 21st. (exams)

Note that Gentoo has some machines for development purposes, see
http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/infrastructure/dev-machines.xml

I'm using one of those for www-client/chromium development, and it's
very helpful.

This summer, I requested access to one of the amd64 boxes but I was told
that both of them are in a non-working state so ...
Furthermore, maintaining a devbox (especially when it is broken)
requires extra time which I don't have.
Can you please tell me which box ( I'd prefer an amd64 one ) are you
using for chromium? If it is in a working state I will ask for access
again!

I have a couple machines that can build it, and also have an interest in boost for some other software I work on. *I'd be happy to help, *just need to know what needs to be done.*

My intention is to start working on boost version bump in my overlay
based on the feedback from bug #320039. If someone wants write access in
my overlay please email me along with
your ssh key so I can compile a list and send it to overlays team to
grant you access. If someone wants to start building the latest version
( ebuild attached on that bug ) feel free to do so and report
problems/fixes/ etc
