2103. Lvalue-to-rvalue conversion is irrelevant in odr-use of a reference

Section: 6.3  [basic.def.odr]     Status: CD5     Submitter: Richard Smith     Date: 2015-03-17

[Accepted as a DR at the February, 2019 meeting.]

Issue 1741 accidentally caused 6.3 [basic.def.odr] to indicate that an lvalue-to-rvalue conversion is necessary for the odr-use of a reference. This is incorrect; any appearance of the reference name in a potentially-evaluated expression should require the reference to be defined.

Proposed resolution (January, 2019):

This issue is resolved by the resolution of issue 2083.
