There is going to be an informal meeting of C++ committee members and
threading experts in Redmond, Washington, US, August 23-25 for the
sole purpose of making some progress on language changes needed to
support threading. It would be helpful to me if Chris and other
Boosters could get together a list before then of the minimal core
language definitions, changes, and other specifications that library
developers need to specify reliable libraries in a multi-threaded
environment. What is needed isn't a laundry list of wishes and dreams,
but a very minimalist list of hard-core needs.
