Do these papers ever have documented feedback?
It would be interesting to see why something is rejected.

@ldionne hi, I saw that you wrote a paper about using the literal operator template for strings.. what was the reaction to that?

@ricejasonf The feedback to papers is private on the Committee wiki. Technically, the papers themselves are supposed to be private to the committee, but WG21 does things differently (fortunately, IMO).
@APokorny This was rejected (again!) because implementers do not want to encourage this kind of compile-time string

Is there another kind of compile-time string?
It would be really nice to get rid of the _s at the end if that is even possible.

There’s no other kind of compile-time string for now. It’s just that representing them as parameter packs is not efficient, and they do not want to encourage that (which is understandable but unfortunate since we have several use cases).
