John reviewed work in P1076 on conditional compilation, and asked for comments and contributions to influence or support that work. John and Jarek are beginning work to capture the P1735 recommendations which imply changes to the VHDL standard.


John asked that we plan to add the new Licensed Digital Envelope use-case to our Recommendations after working group review. He also requested feedback from those who haven't responded yet.

John and Dave discussed the impact of internal vs. external licensing on the Licensed Digital Envelope use case. John plans to update the recommendations with his revised use-case text.
