leads to the other.
Sure, note, however, that, strictly speaking, here we are not
talking about bugs, we are talking about work in progress. In
general, when the relevant documents are clear enough we don't
debate much the implementation, in the mailing lists, unless someone
posts a patch, of course ;) Of course, I don't want to turn down
your help, sorry if that was not clear in my previous messages, but
really, when we are talking about new, experimental, features, we
are really looking for implementors, at this point: imagine what
would happen if each user of the experimental C++0x switch (both the
C++ front-end and the library bits) starts posting about his favored
missing / incomplete item vs the current draft, that would be
I think what we need is something like
for the library. One could start with Alisdair Meredith's most recent
LWG status report:
Actually, a separate section of that same page for library features
would be great. That way, we'd have a single-page snapshot of GCC's
progress toward C++0x.
This is the point where I would usually volunteer to do such a thing,
but I have my hands full right now with the language side of things.
