Discussion:
The specification of conjunction and disjunction uses the term BaseCharacteristic, which is problematic in several ways:
That term is defined in 21.3.2 [meta.rqmts], but only for UnaryTypeTraits and BinaryTypeTraits. conjunction and disjunction seem to be neither.
21.3.2 [meta.rqmts] also requires the BaseCharacteristic for both UnaryTypeTraits and BinaryTypeTraits to be a specialization of integral_constant, which is inconsistent with the current design of conjunction and disjunction.
The requirement in 21.3.2 [meta.rqmts] that "member names of the BaseCharacteristic shall not be hidden and shall be unambiguously available" seems impossible to meet in every case, since the arbitrary base class from which a specialization of conjunction or disjunction derives may contain members called conjunction or disjunction that will necessarily be hidden.

Ville provided wording for both 2567 and 2568
Previous resolution [SUPERSEDED]:
In [meta.logical]/3, edit as follows:
The
BaseCharacteristic of aspecialization conjunction<B1, ..., BN> has a public and unambiguous base that is the first type Bi in the list true_type, B1, ..., BN for which Bi::value == false, or if every Bi::value != false, the aforementioned baseBaseCharacteristicis the last type in the list. [ Note: This means a specialization of conjunction does not necessarilyhave a BaseCharacteristic ofderive from either true_type or false_type. — end note ]In [meta.logical]/6, edit as follows:
The
BaseCharacteristic of aspecialization disjunction<B1, ..., BN> has a public and unambiguous base that is the first type Bi in the list false_type, B1, ..., BN for which Bi::value != false, or if every Bi::value == false, the aforementioned baseBaseCharacteristicis the last type in the list. [ Note: This means a specialization of disjunction does not necessarilyhave a BaseCharacteristic ofderive from either true_type or false_type. — end note ]
Previous resolution [SUPERSEDED]:
Merged the resolution of 2587 with this issue. This proposed resolution resolves both, and includes fixes from Daniel for negation. Last review of this with LWG turned up a true_type typo in the definition of disjunction, and some editorial changes.In [meta.logical]/3, edit as follows:
The
BaseCharacteristic of aspecialization conjunction<B1, ..., BN> has a public and unambiguous base that is either
* the first type Bi in the list true_type, B1, ..., BN for which Bi::value == false, or
* if there is no such Bi, the last type in the list.
is the first type Bi in the list true_type, B1, ..., BN for which Bi::value == false, or if every Bi::value != false, the BaseCharacteristic is the last type in the list.
[ Note: This means a specialization of conjunction does not necessarilyhave a BaseCharacteristic ofderive from either true_type or false_type. — end note ]In [meta.logical]/6, edit as follows:

is the first type Bi in the list true_type, B1, ..., BN for which Bi::value != false, or if every Bi::value == false, the BaseCharacteristic is the last type in the list.

This wording is relative to N4606.
