FWIW, the C++ standards committee is in the process of setting up a new
Study Group for Tooling. Titus Winters will be the chair. I suspect it will
initially focus on tooling to support P0684 *C++ Stability, Velocity, and
Deployment Plans *(See https://wg21.link/p0684), but it is a sign of
increased interest in the whole C++ ecosystem.
