There is no feature test macro for std::span.

For the purposes of SD-6, I think we want two values: 201803L for the original addition of <span> by P0122R7 (Jacksonville, 2018) and then 201902L for the API changes from P1024R3 (Kona, 2019). The C++ working draft only needs the newer value.

Proposed resolution:

This wording is relative to N4830.

  1. Modify the Table 36 "Standard library feature-test macros" [tab:support.ft] in 17.3.1 [support.limits.general] as indicated:

    Table 36: Standard library feature-test macros [tab:support.ft]
    Macro name Value Header(s)
    __cpp_lib_span 201902L <span>
