Subject: SG16 approval of P2295R5 and P2362R1

SG16 approved forwarding a draft of P2295R5 <https://wg21.link/p2295r5>
(Support for UTF-8 as a portable source file encoding) and P2362R0
<https://wg21.link/p2362r0> (Make obfuscating wide character literals
ill-formed) with minor modifications to EWG during its July 14th telecon
<https://github.com/sg16-unicode/sg16-meetings/blob/master/README.md#july-14th-2021>. 
All requested SG16 changes are present in the published versions of
P2295R5 <https://wg21.link/p2295r5> and P2362R1
<https://wg21.link/p2362r1> that appear in the most recent mailing
<http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2021/#mailing2021-07>
(note that P2362R1 <https://wg21.link/p2362r1> sports a new title).

These papers are now ready for review by EWG and the Github issue
tracker <https://github.com/cplusplus/papers/issues> has been updated
accordingly.  Both papers have wording that has been reviewed by a core
expert and each reflects existing implementation practice. P2295
<https://wg21.link/p2295r5> has also been reviewed by SG22 (C/C++
Liaison) and has not been tagged for review by any other SGs. P2362
<https://wg21.link/p2362> still awaits SG22 review, so I encourage the
EWG and SG22 chairs to coordinate to determine if EWG review should
await SG22's review.

Thank you to both authors for the time and patience they exhibited
throughout the reviews of these papers; particularly with regard to
finding wording for P2295 <https://wg21.link/p2295r5>.

Tom.
