Re: [std-proposals] A proposal on default enum initialization

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for the explanation.

I thought that if this email pre-discussion vetoes the idea, then it makes no sense to go to drafting it etc.
But if it’s not like that, I can start preparing a draft.

Thanks a lot for the discussion and your comments.
So am I right with the understanding that the idea is a ‘no-go’?

That's not how the process works. You need to write a formal proposal. See https://www.stroustrup.com/how-to-write-a-proposal.pdf

You (or a champion) then need to present the formal proposal to WG21 at a meeting, likely the EWGI subgroup which deals initially with language extensions. They will then discuss it and take a vote whether they want to consider working on it.

I'd start by writing a draft of the formal proposal and then posting the draft document to std-proposals. We can let you know the next step once this is done. For examples of other proposals see https://wg21.link/index.html
