What is the fastest way to find a defect in the C++ Standard Core Language Defect Report RRS feed

  • Question

  • It took me a while to find this defect on paragraph §8.5/7 of the C++11 Standard. I finally found it by just googling some of the words contained in the draft N3797 for the alluded paragraph. Before that, I was looking for issues with the status DRWP (A DR issue whose resolution is reflected in the current Working Paper. The Working Paper is a draft for a future version of the Standard). But the status for this report is CD3 (A DR issue not resolved in C++11 but included in the Committee Draft advanced for balloting at the April 2013 WG21 meeting). Given that §8.5/7 in N3797 corresponds exactly to the words in the Proposed Resolution on this DR(1301), I'm assuming that the Status was not updated from CD3 to DRWP. Is this correct?

  • Hi,

    As far as I know the issues in the defect report are with status      "DR,"      "accepted,"      "DRWP,"      "WP,"      "CD1,"      "CD2,"      "CD3,"      "TC1," and      "C++11,"      along with their proposed resolutions.  Issues with DR,  accepted, DRWP, and WP status are NOT part of the International  Standard for C++. They are provided for informational purposes only, as an indication of the intent of the Committee.  They should not be considered definitive until or unless they appear in an approved Technical Corrigendum or revised  International Standard for C++.

    For me I think the fastest way to find the defect is to pay more attention to the defect reports publishing website because of its authority.

    This doesn't answer my question. As a matter of fact it doesn't relate to my question at all.

    Remember that I mentioned draft N3797 which is post C++11 Standard. I've noticed that §8.5/7 was changed in N3797 in relation to the Standard. So, I wanted to know the reason for this change. Then I started to look for some issue with status ("DRWP - A DR issue whose resolution is reflected in the current Working Paper. The Working Paper is a draftt for a future version of the Standard." See this definition here) , which is exactly the case of the draft N3797. After an exhausting search, I finally found the issue 1301 that deals with the change in §8.5/7, which has a status "CD3" and not "DRWP", as I was thinking at the beginning. This should explain the main title of my question. "What is the fastest way of finding a defect (issue) in the C++ Core language Defect Report?"

    BTW, the link you provided above (http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/cwg_defects.html#1287) also has nothing to do with §8.5/7 .
