My apologies for being so late in communicating this agenda for tomorrow's SG16 telecon.

Please note that there has been a schedule change. Tomorrow's telecon was originally scheduled for 2021-10-27 but was moved forward a week to avoid conflicts with CppCon. The shared calendar has been updated (which triggered the sending of new meeting invitations).

SG16 will hold a telecon on Wednesday, October 20th (not the 27th) at 19:30 UTC (timezone conversion).

The agenda is:

A draft of D2071R1 is not yet available, but is expected to be sent to the SG16 mailing list later today. That draft will address EWG feedback from Prague except that it will specify relaxed checking of character names for implementation reasons (the prototype implementation that Corentin did demonstrated how relaxed checking enables a smaller database of valid character names).

P1885 is back on the agenda to settle questions that have continued to be raised on the LEWG and SG16 mailing lists. Corentin indicated intent to change the encoding querying functions to always return unknown when CHAR_BIT is not 8; we'll discuss the ramifications of that intent. Concerns about intended behavior for wide strings continue to be raised, so we'll discuss and poll various approaches for dealing with them.
