Minutes, January 9, 2001
Eager has received copies of the Operating Procedures and
Membership Forms for two groups which are operating under
the auspices of IEEE-ISTO. He will revise them to apply to
Dwarf 2 and distribute them for comment. A logo is needed.
991026.3 Duplicate Dwarf data deletion
Dave Anderson will chair a subcommittee with Ron Brender
and Ulrich Drepper to finalize this proposal. A final
version is expected no later than April 1.
991108.2 C++ virtual functions
Rejected with the recommendation that this be implemented
as a vendor extension. The comments on this topic in
email from Feb 21, 2000, will be appended to the proposal.
991108.13 Unwinding stacks (DW_CFA)
This appears to have been address in 001012.1 and 000330.1.
We discussed whether the proposal submitted Dec 13, 2000, should be
considered. After it was explained that it had no relationship to
either 001101.1 or 001130.1 (despite its appearance to either modify
or depend upon these proposals), and that it only applied to location
lists, it was decided to request that this proposal be redrafted for
consideration by the committee. Dave Weatherford noted that the
proposal appeared to be addressed by existing text in the standard.
Ron Brender will redraft 001130.1 to apply to Loclists.
Eager will prepare a proposal on versioning Dwarf 2.
Publication of the standard for public review is delayed until
April, to allow time for duplicate Dwarf elimination issued to
be fully explored, possibly for inclusion as an additional
chapter in the document.
It was noted that there were a large number of outstanding issues
related to Java. The committee felt that it was unlikely that
any concrete proposals would be forthcoming that would address
these issues. Java will be listed as partially supported (as
represented by a dagger in Figure 27 in (draft 5) Section 7.12).
