[SG10] Meeting 03-23

From: Nelson, Clark <clark.nelson_at_[hidden]>
Date: Wed, 18 Mar 2015 18:27:20 +0000
I'd like for SG10 to meet Monday, as I originally tentatively proposed back
at the beginning of February (remember that?).

If you would like to attend, but this Monday at 10:00 Pacific time (summer
time! specifically UTC-7) would not work out for you, please reply to me
privately. If I get enough complaints, I'll move it to April 6; that would
still be in time for the pre-Lenexa mailing. (I will schedule the meeting
in WebEx, and provide connection details, by Friday.)

The only changes I have made to the document since February were to add
editor notes (yellow) to the rationale section for C++17 indicating
changes for which we intend to recommend no macro; capturing our
justifications for these decisions is particularly important, in my view.
Explicit justification would also be necessary for changes to
recommendations we previously published for C++14.


There are about a half-dozen entries in the C++17 table where more than one
name has been proposed, or where some other question exists. We need to
reach consensus on all of those. And of course there's no harm in everyone
taking another look at all the other entries, to make sure we have those
right as well.

There are a couple of proposed changes to the recommendations for C++14.
We need to make sure the consensus is that those changes are really

Then there's the whole question of what we should do about C++11, including
whether we already went too far when SD-6 was revised at the end of the
year. For specifics, see:


The new entries, for which we didn't specifically consider the rationale,
are the underlined ones: range-based for, specific attributes, and
everything in the table from initializer lists on.
