1845. Point of instantiation of a variable template specialization

Section:  [temp.point]     Status: drafting     Submitter: Richard Smith     Date: 2014-01-28

The current wording of [temp.point] does not define the point of instantiation of a variable template specialization. Presumably replacing the references to “static data member of a class template” with “variable template” in paragraphs 1 and 8 would be sufficient.

Additional note, July, 2017:

It has also been observed that there is no definition of the point of instantiation for an alias template. It is not clear that there is a need for normative wording for the point of instantiation of an alias template, but if not, a note explaining its absence would be helpful.
