2162. Capturing this by reference

Section:  [expr.prim.lambda.capture]     Status: CD3     Submitter: Brian Bi     Date: 2015-07-23

The current wording of 7.5.5 [expr.prim.lambda] paragraphs 15 and 16 does not, but presumably should, indicate that this, if implicitly captured, is always captured by copy and not by reference.

For each entity captured by copy...

Notes from the February, 2016 meeting:

Paper P0018 is intended to change this area, so this issue is being returned to "review" status to accommodate those changes.
