Dear Boost community,

The formal review of Zach Laine's Unicode library, Text, begins today
(June 11th) and ends on June 20th.

The library provides three layers:
 - The string layer, a set of types that constitute "a better std::string"
 - The Unicode layer, consisting of the Unicode algorithms and data
 - The text layer, a set of types like the string layer types, but
providing transparent Unicode support

Code: https://github.com/tzlaine/text
Docs: https://tzlaine.github.io/text

The master branch of the repository will be frozen for the duration of
the review.

Text requires C++14 or higher, and supports GCC 5+, Clang 3.6+, and MSVC 2017.

Zach initially presented the library at C++Now in 2018. He also
intends to standardize a library solution for Unicode based on this
