Bug#123483: O: boost -- free, peer-reviewed, C++ libraries
The current maintainer of boost, Raphael Bossek <email@example.com>,
is apparently not active anymore[*]. Therefore, I orphan this package
now. If you want to be the new maintainer, please take it -- retitle
this bug from 'O:' to 'ITA:', fix the outstanding bugs and upload a
new version with your name in the Maintainer: field and a
* New maintainer (Closes: #thisbug)
in the changelog so this bug is closed.

[*] Justification: the maintainer currently has 17 open RC bugs (not
counting those fixed in NMUs). Several NMUs were done, at least two
packages (pwlib, usbview) have already been hihacked, the maintainer
does not respond to mails.
Justification why this particular package has been orphaned by me now:
1 serious bug open.
