Egg 2nd request for reviews

Hi All

The review of the Egg library by Shunsuke Sogame has been running for 1 week now. There has been some
discussion of the library on a couple of related threads, but no reviews submitted so far. Please try and
find time to submit a review of this library if possible.

If you wish to review, but don't have time before the review ends on April 13th, please post to that effect, we
may be able to extend / move the review period to help reviewers.

Introduction:
    It is not so easy to define Function Objects
    especially if you want to support Boost.ResultOf and Boost.Lambda.
    Therefore, as Boost provides iterator_facade and iterator adaptors,
    Egg provides function_facade and function adaptors.

Egg provides the following features:

    * Workaround for the Forwarding Problem
        http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2002/n1385.htm

    * Helpers to build Function Objects:
        * egg::function and egg::function_facade provides the way to
          build Function Objects which supports Boost.ResultOf and Lambda.

    * Function Objects Adaptors(in other words, higher-order functions):
        * egg::curryN supports the currying.
        * egg::pipable emulates extension methods(C#).
        * egg::fuse/unfuse emulates variadic functions.
        * egg::nestN represents nested lambda expressions.
        * etc...

[Proto] Review result

Hi all,

initially I was hoping to find some time over the last weekend to go through
the reviews in great detail to put together a proper review report. Well, as
things happen, I was not able to find the time :-(

To avoid further delays, here is the short version of the review result:
Proto got 16 reviews (That's well above average! Thanks to all for
participating), out of which 15 have been positive. The one 'No' essentially
stated that the library, even if doubtless very useful, shouldn't be
accepted yet, mainly because there has to be done more work in the area of
formalizing the problem domain.

In my opinion this is an overwhelming result and I'm whole heartily agreeing
with the majority of the voters.

Proto is accepted as a Boost library.

The discussions have been very detailed and there have been raised a lot of
(mostly minor) issues, but Eric is aware of the problems and is working on
solving them. I'll try to put together a summary as soon as possible.

Regards Hartmut
Review Manager

Egg review period extended until April 20th

Hi All

The Egg review has run for 2 weeks now with zero reviews, which is obviously
disappointing. There has been some good and pretty thorough discussion, and
a couple of promises of reviews. As such, I'm extending the review period
by 1 week until 20th April 2008.

Please do post a review if you have any interest in this library. In case anybody
is unsure, in the case of zero votes being posted, the default result will be
a rejection. Please lets make sure we don't have to fall through to this default case.

Egg Review ends today

The review of the Egg library by Shunsuke Sogame ends today. If anybody is still considering doing a review,
please do still submit it, even if it is a few days late.

It will take a short while for me to summarise the discussion during the review period. The review result
will be posted shortly.

Thanks
