Subject [REPORT] Apache C++ Standard Library (stdcxx)
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2012 10:39:31 GMT

Apache STDCXX is a collection of algorithms, containers, iterators,
and other fundamental components of every piece of software, implemented
as C++ classes, templates, and functions essential for writing C++ programs.


* There has not been a release of stdcxx since 2008. Renewed work is
  being done on the 4.2.x and 4.3.x branches.


* After a "gentle" nudge by the current chair, we've seen renewed activity
  on the mailing list. In particular, a specific BUGZ entry (STDCXX-1056)
  has seen a lot of discussion.

* There was some licensing FUD discussed on the list, mostly to promote
  a "rationale" for moving the project elsewhere and/or releasing
  stdcxx under a different license. This has (hopefully) been clarified.

* Branching and development policies are being discussed on the
  mailing list.

* Moving to git, as a way to draw in more potential developers
  was suggested, but as of yet there is no decision on whether
  to follow through with it.


* Stefan Teleman ( was added to the PMC in July


* There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.
