We decided to take on the following priority tasks:
Review the text developed by the Canadian Mirror committee for subclauses 6.5, 6.13, 6.22 and 6.38 of TR 24772-9 C++ prior to taking to meeting 51. This material is in N 0748.
Review the material submitted to WG 21 for its November meeting in Albuquerque, contained in document N 0748. Members are asked to review the material and propose any wording that would make the intent clearer to WG 21 members.
Review the submission by Clive Pygott in N0747 on format string vulnerability. This material was discussed, the changes placed in N0750 and then updated into TR24772-1 as N0751.
Reviewed N0749, draft python annex with comments from Nick Coghlan.
We need to turn Nick’s comments into wording.
We need to address the OO issues.
We need to determine how to address Python 3 vs Python 2 issues, especially since python 3 is a non-backwards-compatible revision.
Steve to keep looking for more experts.
