out_ptr's formal review starts now!

Boost - Announce mailing list
NOTE: I forgot to cross-post this to this list on Jun 16th; I only posted to boost and boos-users.  My apologies to anyone who relies on this list for notification of reviews (I know of at least one)!

Dear Boost community, 

The formal review of JeanHeyd Meneide's out_ptr library starts Sunday, June 16th
and ends on Wednesday, June 26th.

out_ptr is a library for making it easy to interoperate between smart pointers and traditional C-style initialization and allocation interfaces. It also enables doing so in a way that allows library authors to opt into speed optimizations for their smart pointers that give them performance equivalent to typical C pointers (see benchmarks (https://github.com/ThePhD/out_ptr/blob/master/docs/out_ptr/benchmarks.adoc) and the Standard C++ proposal for more details).

Online docs can be found here:


The GitHub repository is available here: 


Also, there is an associated standards proposal:
