[J3] List of passed papers with approved edits

Hi Damian,


You don’t see 17-200 on the list, as this was before we even started thinking about what Fortran 202x would be like. At that time (2017, meeting 214) we were working hard preparing the FCD for Fortran 2018. And so, according to my notes, 17-200 was “no action” at meeting 214 (as it was out of order).


But it was not forgotten: at meeting 215, J3 started thinking about the possible contents of Fortran 202x, and therefore at that meeting HPC subgroup looked at the issues that 17-200 was trying to raise, and I believe this is where US12 “arrays of coarrays” came from. That feature certainly is on the list, the paper being 19-250r1.


Bill could probably give you more details of the outcome of 17-200 considerations and discussions, but I think I have the basic idea right.


Hope that helps,




..............Malcolm Cohen, NAG Oxford/Tokyo.

Hi Malcolm,


What's the status of 17-200?  Is HPC still working on it?  I don't see it on the list.

Hi folks,


Below is my list of papers with approved edits either for approved features or editorial. I went through all the papers back to meeting 218 (before that I believe we were still in F2018 mode).


If anyone thinks there is anything wrong with this list (a missing paper, or a paper is included that should not be, or I have not listed the most recent revision, or there is a paper before meeting 218 which needs to be applied), please let me know asap. Otherwise the wrongness will be included in the next 007 draft where it could be a lot harder to spot!


(If you don’t see anything wrong, no need to comment as I am proceeding on the assumption that having checked everything twice, it’s probably okay.)
