This is an unofficial snapshot of the ISO/IEC JTC1 SC22 WG21 Core Issues List revision 110d. See http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/ for the official list.
[Voted into the WP at the July, 2017 meeting.]
It is not clear to what extent the type in an explicit instantiation must match that of a variable template. For example:
template<typename T> T var = T(); template float var<float>; // #1. template int* var<int>; // #2. template auto var<char>; // #3.
(See also issue 1704.)
Proposed resolution (May, 2017):
This issue is resolved by the resolution of issue 1704.
