The specialization for vector<bool> (26.3.12 [vector.bool]) has a constructor


which differs from the base template's constructor (and other containers) in that it has no allocator parameter.

[ 2009-12-16 Moved to Tentatively Ready after 5 positive votes on c++std-lib. ]

Proposed resolution:

Change the signature in the synopsis of 26.3.12 [vector.bool] to

vector(initializer_list<bool>, const Allocator& = Allocator());
