This is an unofficial snapshot of the ISO/IEC JTC1 SC22 WG21 Core Issues List revision 110b. See http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/ for the official list.
[Moved to DR at the November, 2014 meeting.]
Issue 1350 clarified that the exception-specification for an inheriting constructor is determined like defaulted functions, but we should also say something similar for deleted, and perhaps constexpr.
Also, the description of the semantics of inheriting constructors don't seem to allow for C-style variadic functions, so the text should be clearer that such constructors are only inherited without their ellipsis.
Proposed resolution (February, 2014):
Change _N4527_.12.9 [class.inhctor] paragraph 1 as follows:
A using-declaration (9.9 [namespace.udecl]) that names a constructor implicitly declares a set of inheriting constructors. The candidate set of inherited constructors from the class X named in the using-declaration consists of actual constructors and notional constructors that result from the transformation of defaulted parameters as follows:
all non-template constructorsof X, and
for each non-template constructor of X that has at least one parameter with a default argument, the set of constructors that results from omitting any ellipsis parameter specification and successively omitting parameters with a default argument from the end of the parameter-type-list, and
all constructor templatesof X, and
for each constructor template of X that has at least one parameter with a default argument, the set of constructor templates that results from omitting any ellipsis parameter specification and successively omitting parameters with a default argument from the end of the parameter-type-list.
Change _N4527_.12.9 [class.inhctor] paragraph 2 as follows:
The constructor characteristics of a constructor or constructor template are
Change _N4527_.12.9 [class.inhctor] paragraph 4 as follows:
A constructor so declared has the same access as the corresponding constructor in X. It is deleted if the corresponding constructor in X is deleted (
9.5 [dcl.fct.def]) . An inheriting constructor shall not be explicitly instantiated (13.9.3 [temp.explicit]) or explicitly specialized (13.9.4 [temp.expl.spec]).
