This is the result summary for the Type Traits Introspection library by
The review have been on going from July 1st to july 17th and had generated a large amount of very interesting design discussion. The library received 5 Positive reviews and a few positive comments next to that.
**The verdict is that, the TTI Library is ACCEPTED into Boost.**
However, a few comments and concerns have been raised but are
rather simple changes to perform and I am sure Edward will
take these comments into account before releasing the library.
Such comments include:
* The main comment is the fact that Boost.TTI force the
definitions of its meta-functions into the boost::tti.
Concerns have been raised and requests made that the macro
don't specify any namespace and let users bring the generated
meta-functions in the namespace of their own liking.
* The number of macros handling various corner cases has been
raised as potentially too high. Effort to streamline the macro
based interface has been requested.
* Support for more compiler is needed. Some issues on ICC has been
raised but are currently being looked upon (or fixed).
* Naming scheme of the macro and of the generated meta-functions
have to be refined to be 1/ more clear 2/ avoid some non-standard
name starting with __
* Some more detailed and entry-level examples may be beneficial
to the library
* Pre-made macro for classical typedef like value_type or other std
components has been proposed
Thanks to all the participants and to Edward for this review.
