SG16 currently has two papers in its queue that seek to allow code evaluated in constant expression context to produce text to be displayed to a (compiler) user at compile time.
JF is planning for EWG to review these in Issaquah. Since SG16 will not be meeting in Issaquah, our options are limited for providing recommendations prior to that initial EWG review. JF has asked that we conduct a review via mailing list to collect input prior to EWG's review. SG16 will still review post-Issaquah as we usually would in order to provide a recommendation for EWG to consider in a future telecon or in Varna.
Please respond to this message with your thoughts on these papers before Monday, February 6th, if possible; I know that is short notice. I will plan to prepare a summary for EWG.
These papers overlap considerably. The authors have already been encouraged to collaborate on a joint proposal.
