Subject: Re: [SG16-Unicode] Draft SG16 direction paper
From: Tom Honermann (tom_at_[hidden])
Date: 2018-10-07 00:35:57


Another updated draft has been posted. This completes my planned changes.

Changes include:
- Added additional author names for those that explicitly consented.
- Added some discussion to the direction section regarding interaction
of char8_t (and char16_t) to existing code.
- Added an acknowledgement section.
- Added references.

I'll hold off on submitting this until tomorrow evening.

Tom.
