No decisions were made at this meeting, but consensus was reached for
the direction of transitioning the standard to a source translation
model specified in terms of Unicode scalar values instead of UCNs.

The next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, November 11th, from
19:30-21:00 UTC (timezone conversion
The draft agenda is:

  * P1885R3: Naming Text Encodings to Demystify Them
      o Review updates since the review of D1885R2 in Prague
  * P2093R2: Formatted output <https://wg21.link/p2093r2>

For P1885R3, please recall that we previously forwarded this paper in
Prague knowing that we would review a future update. This is that
review. Corentin invested the considerable time necessary to identify a
number of encodings that are not accounted for in the IANA DB by cross
referencing encodings supported by Windows, GNU iconv, and the WHATWG
encoding standard. We'll review that list and give the proposed
interface a quick once over to refresh ourselves on it and look for any
last tweaks to be suggested. The intent is *not* to re-litigate the design.

For P2093R3, please chuckle at the quote, and then take time to
contemplate how the proposed feature is expected to interoperate with
the encoding of string literals and the (locale sensitive) run-time
execution encoding. In particular, note that the proposal uses the
string literal encoding as a proxy to assume a run-time execution encoding.

No decisions are anticipated at this meeting, but direction polls may be
