ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 22/WG 21 P2081R0
Audience: LEWG, LWGThomas Köppe <firstname.lastname@example.org>
The Library Fundamentals v3 TS should be based on C++20.
The working draft of the Extensions for Library Fundamentals, Version 3 Technical Specification (“LFTSv3” or just “LFTS” for short) is currently (as of P0996R1) based on the published C++ standard, i.e. C++17. It is very unlikely, and indeed not planned at this point, that we will publish the TS before the C++20 DIS has been published (which we expect to happen at the next meeting as of the time of writing, which is Prague 2020). Therefore, we have the option of basing the TS on the C++20 DIS, and we should do this to allow us to remove facilities that have been merged into the main standard, and to take advantage of new language facilities.
If the C++20 IS is published before we complete the PDTS ballot for the LFTS, we should update the LFTS working draft to refer to the IS instead of the DIS. The acceptance of this proposal should include approval of such a future change, which would then be an editorial matter to align the wording with the design intent.
Modify [1.2, general.references] paragraphs 1, 2, and 3 as follows:
1.2 Normative references [general.references]
1. The following referenced document is indispensable for the application of this document. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies.
14882:2017 is herein
called the C++ Standard. References to clauses within the C++
Standard are written as " C++17 §3.2". The
library described in ISO/IEC 14882:2017 clauses
20–33 is herein
called the C++ Standard Library.
3. Unless otherwise specified, the whole of the C++ Standard's Library
C++17 §20) is included into
this Technical Specification by reference.

Update section numbers, and update the “C++17-concept” names everywhere
and replace “satisfies” with “meets”, e.g. “satisfies
the requirements of
CopyConstructible” becomes “meets
the C++17CopyConstructible requirements”.

22.214.171.124 propagate_const constructors [propagate_const.ctor]
[Note: The following constructors are conditionally specified as explicit. This is typically implemented by declaring two such constructors, of which at most one participates in overload resolution. — end note]
