The main aim of the meeting was to construct a new draft of the Technical Specification on Further Coarray Features that would be suitable for sending to SC22 for a formal vote as a PDTS. There were too many comments on the old draft, see N1971, for this to be possible, but a new draft was constructed, N1983, that addressed almost all the comments. Some quite major changes were made that led to a revision of the requirements document. The new version is N1981. The changes are
The TS is behind schedule but it is hoped that the slippage will be by only four months (one J3 meeting). Items for the next revision of the Standard that had been suggested by USA and UK were considered. 15 of these were accepted, see N1982, all of which are very small.
Van Snyder presented a tutorial on units, see N1970 and requested WG5 to commit to a TS for this, based on the next standard. WG5 decided against doing this.
