  Hi all,

Thank you all for participating in the review so far. I'd like to outline
some of the changes that have been implemented thus far, and others that
are pending as there is not a clear consensus. The live branch can be found

- Empty class specialization for N = 0: Implemented
- Use of smallest possible type to store size: Implemented
- More noexcept: Mostly implemented, still need to address exception
specification for template overloads intended for `string_view`
- Hash support: Implemented for both std::hash and boost::hash
- Change `substr` to return a `fixed_string` and add a `subview` function:
- Fixed the user configuration macro and changed the name to
- Added mandatory meta folder

A few things on the list of change remain:
- `constexpr` all the things!... Only C++20 allows for members to remain
uninitialized by a constexpr constructor, so use in previous revisions of
the standard would require initialization of each element, which could
impose an unacceptable performance penalty
- We still have not settled on a name that is concise and descriptive
- No consensus has been reached on how operator+ should be implemented
- Documentation needs to be updated

Thank you,
Krystian Stasiowski
