Project discussion

LRM status
The WG 1076 is identifying new projects. Ernst tried to get more information from Jim Lewis. At the moment, it as too early to coordinate the LRM update with the WG 1076. Ernst gave some examples on how to complete the baseline document with existing text at proper places. Details can be found in the P1076-2008-conditional.pdf file in the Working Group Documents Private Area.

TDM update
After the last WG meeting, Ernst provided an example on how to use protected types to hide type declarations. Details were discussed by the TDM subcommittee and it was decided to continue in this way. Joachim will start to adapt the existing TDM test implementaion to this approach.
