Proposals Discussed at Plenary#
Interpretation: FORM TEAM and failed images (https://j3-fortran.org/doc/year/20/20-102r1.txt)
Interpretation: Collective subroutines and STAT= (https://j3-fortran.org/doc/year/20/20-104r1.txt)
Interpretation: events that cause variables to become undefined (https://j3-fortran.org/doc/year/20/20-119.txt)
Edits for SIMPLE procedures (https://j3-fortran.org/doc/year/20/20-116.txt)
Edits for procedure pointer association (https://j3-fortran.org/doc/year/20/20-123.txt). Passed unanimously.
#157 : Edits for rank-agnostic bounds (https://j3-fortran.org/doc/year/20/20-124.txt). Withdrawn because some edits were missing and need to be added. There were concerns about fitting into the framework of generics later on.
#157 : Edits for rank-agnostic array element and section denotation (https://j3-fortran.org/doc/year/20/20-125.txt). Failed (5 v 7). Missing edits, and disagreement on types vs rank-1 integers, the options need to be explored more.
Interpretation: Public namelist and private variable (https://j3-fortran.org/doc/year/20/20-127.txt). Straw vote (0 yes, 8 no, 9 undecided). Passed unanimously with “no” alternative.
Interpretation F18/015 (https://j3-fortran.org/doc/year/20/20-105.txt). Passed unanimously.
