It was rejected after one of the lengthiest reviews in many years. Lots of good feedback on how it ought to look. #boostcpp #c++ #boost-outcome

The peer review of my proposed Boost.Outcome library ended yesterday after being extended to two weeks to allow more discussion. Some 732 emails were sent on the topic, one of the most vigorous debates on boost-dev in many years, and a very highly productive one I think despite that we did not find consensus.

Just sent off my Outcome library for Boost peer review, so it is now frozen for the next few weeks while people study it and find many, many problems in it, and decide if it should be accepted or not. It's taken three years to get to now, my thanks to everyone who helped make it happen. I am having a beer (pictured) now this intense sprint of work to
