LWG 2560 mention that there is no variable of function type. There's also no variable of void type, so should [meta.unary.prop] also explicitly say that for a void type T, is_constructible<T, Args...>::value is false?

Wed PM: Move to Tentatively Ready

Proposed resolution:

This wording is relative to N4594.

  1. Change [meta.unary.prop], Table 52 — "Type property predicates", as indicated:

    Table 52 — Type property predicates
    Template Condition Preconditions
    template <class T, class... Args>
    struct is_constructible;
    For a function type T
    or for a (possibly cv-qualified) void type T,
    is_constructible<T, Args...>::value
    is false, otherwise see below
    T and all types in the
    parameter pack Args shall
    be complete types,
    (possibly cv-qualified)
    void, or arrays of
    unknown bound.
