In Bristol I think I claimed that the remarks for optional::to_value() were unimplementable and the function could only be constexpr if both constructors that could be called were constexpr, but I was wrong. The remarks should be reverted to the original pre-n3793 form.

Accept for Library Fundamentals TS Working Paper

Proposed resolution:

This wording is relative to N3908.

  1. Change [optional.object.observe] p23 of the Library Fundamentals specification as indicated:

    template <class U> constexpr T value_or(U&& v) const &;
    

    […]

    -23- Remarks: If both constructors of T which could be selected are constexpr constructorsthe selected constructor of T is a constexpr constructor, this function shall be a constexpr function.
