The Boost formal review of the Describe starts Monday, taking place from March 1st, 2021 to March 10th, 2021 (inclusive).

The library is authored by Peter Dimov.

Documentation: https://pdimov.github.io/describe/doc/html/describe.html
Source: https://github.com/pdimov/describe

The library provides a simple means of providing reflection for structures and enums in C++. 

The documentation contains a number of common motivating examples, including:

- A universal print function

- JSON serialisation

Please provide in your review information you think is valuable to
understand your choice to ACCEPT or REJECT including Describe as a
Boost library. Please be explicit about your decision (ACCEPT or REJECT).

Some other questions you might want to consider answering:

  - What is your evaluation of the design?
  - What is your evaluation of the implementation?
  - What is your evaluation of the documentation?
  - What is your evaluation of the potential usefulness of the library?
  - Did you try to use the library? With which compiler(s)? Did you
    have any problems?
  - How much effort did you put into your evaluation? A glance? A quick
    reading? In-depth study?
  - Are you knowledgeable about the problem domain?

More information about the Boost Formal Review Process can be found
at: http://www.boost.org/community/reviews.html

The review is open to anyone who is prepared to put in the work of evaluating and reviewing the library. Prior experience in contributing to Boost reviews is not a requirement.

Thank you for your efforts in the Boost community. They are very much appreciated.
