2783. Handling of deduction guides in global-module-fragment

Section: 10.4  [module.global.frag]     Status: DRWP     Submitter: Daniela Engert     Date: 2023-08-21

[Accepted as a DR at the November, 2023 meeting.]

Consider:

  // header "S.h"
  
  template<class T>
  struct S {
    S(const T*);
  };
  template<class T>
  S(T*) -> S<T>

  // translation unit
  module;
  #include "S.h"

  export module M;
  export using ::S;

Obviously, the using-declaration referring to the class template S is exported by M, but what about the deduction guide of S?

Proposed resolution (approved by CWG 2023-08-25) [SUPERSEDED]:

Add a new bullet after 10.4 [module.global.frag] bullet 3.5.7 as follows:
