This is to inform you that safe_numerics library by Robert Ramey is CONDITIONALLY ACCEPTED to Boost. The list of conditions can be found down below.
I would like to congratulate Robert for getting the library into Boost, and thank him for the effort to develop a useful library for the community. I also would like to thank everyone who participated in the review and shared their useful feedback.
I recorded five reviews with a yes/no vote:
And three without a vote:
We also got some feedback from an individual nicknamed "scatters" at Reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/cpp/
There was a general consensus that the problem of surprises with C++ ints deserves a solution. Some people observed that there are other ways to approach the same problem, but it was agreed that the approach taken by safe_numerics is sound.
The acceptance conditions mostly revolve around documenting micro-decisions made by the library, and fixing bugs. They apply to the reviewed GIT commit 3bcfabe1cafb8ef6edf08d3bd8730a1555b1c45d, but I know Robert is already working on fixing them, and has most of them fixed locally.
Other important issues
The following are not conditions for library acceptance, but I still recommend addressing them before the initial release.
The following summarizes other useful suggestions for improving the library in the future.
