Subject: SG16 meeting this week:
From: Peter Brett (pbrett_at_[hidden])
Date: 2021-08-23 03:41:12


Hi all,

We will be resuming SG16 meetings this week on Wednesday 2021-08-25
19:30 UTC.

Since Tom Honermann will be unavailable this week, we will require a
volunteer to take minutes. I will try to get the last meeting's minutes
published ASAP.

The agenda will be:

1. P2348R0 Whitespace Wording Revamp (Corentin Jabot)
   http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2021/p2348r0.pdf

   This is the first time we have seen this paper. Note that it arises
   from proposal 2 of P2178 "Misc lexing and string handling
   improvements" [1], which we previously discussed on 2020-08-26 [2].
   It is intended to fix CWG1655 "Line endings in raw string literals"
   [3]. We decided that we needed to see a more specific wording
   proposal before we could meaningfully poll on the proposal -- and
   this is it.

2. P2419R0 Clarify handling of encodings in localized formatting of
   chrono types (Victor Zverovich, Peter Brett)
   http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2021/p2419r0.html

   In our meeting of 2021-07-28, we polled on an approach to fixing
   LWG3565 "Handling of encodings in localized formatting of chrono
   types is underspecified" [4]. This paper contains a write-up of the
   rationale and proposed library wording.

3. LWG3576 Clarifying fill character in std::format (Mark de Wever)
   https://cplusplus.github.io/LWG/issue3576

   Time allowing, we will discuss this newly-submitted issue which
   arises from the sadly familiar ambiguity in the use of the noun
   "character". We will have an exciting and spirited discussion about
   whether it should be interpreted in this situation as "code unit",
   "codepoint" or "grapheme cluster".

Best regards,

                Peter
