697. Deduction rules apply to more than functions

Section: 13.10.3  [temp.deduct]     Status: open     Submitter: Doug Gregor     Date: 6 June, 2008

13.10.3 [temp.deduct] is all about function types, but these rules also apply, e.g., when matching a class template partial specialization. We should add a note stating that we could be doing substitution into the template-id for a class template partial specialization.

Additional note (August 2008):

According to [temp.spec.partial.match] paragraph 2, argument deduction is used to determine whether a given partial specialization matches a given argument list. However, there is nothing in [temp.spec.partial.match] nor in 13.10.3 [temp.deduct] and its subsections that describes exactly how argument deduction is to be performed in this case. It would seem that more than just a note is required to clarify this processing.
