1149. Trivial non-public copy operators in subobjects

Section:  [class.copy.ctor]     Status: C++11     Submitter: FI     Date: 2010-08-03

N3092 comment FI 5

A class with a non-public explicitly-defaulted copy constructor isn't ever trivially copyable under the current rules. If such a class is used as a subobject, the copy constructor of the aggregating class should be trivial if it can access the non-public explicitly defaulted copy constructor of a subobject.

See also issue 1145.

Rationale (August, 2010):

The consensus of the CWG was that this change should not be made at this point in the standardization process, but that it might be considered at a later date.

Proposed resolution (November, 2010):

This issue is resolved by the resolution of issue 1135.
