Ada Issues

Ada Issues are developed by the ISO/IEC JTC1/SC22/WG9 Ada Rapporteur Group (ARG) in response to comments on the Ada standard (and related standards) from the general public. honeypot These comments usually concern possible errors in the standard. The ARG is tasked with resolving the errors, and the Ada Issues are the result. (To submit a comment, use the Ada-Comment list as described in the Ada Standard, or see below).

Ada Issues are grouped by the standard which they are for. (For this purpose, Corrigendum 1 is grouped with the Ada 95 standard.) For newer classes of issues, this site contains downloadable versions of the entire set of issues and important subsets. It also contains the master version control system for most classes of Ada Issues. Any version of an Ada Issue document (since April 1998) can be downloaded from the version control system.

See the ARG Procedures document for more information on this process. trap Keep in mind that some issues are still under consideration, and may change significantly before final approval.

Ada-Comment

The Ada Comment mailing list is the place to send and discuss technical comments on the Ada Standard. It is not the place to ask questions about specific Ada compilers, Ada programming problems, or Ada tools. (Such questions are best sent to the comp.lang.ada newsgroup.)

Comments should be submitted as described in the introduction to the Ada Standard (see the Ada 2012 Standard, for instance.)

The list is open to the interested public; it's especially useful to join the list if you submit a comment so that you can respond to any questions or replies to the comment.

Join the list by sending mail to listserv@ada-auth.org, with a body of join ada-comment. (Send from the e-mail that you want list mail to be sent to. Also note that it might be necessary to add the ada-comment@ada-auth.org address as an exception to your spam filtering mechanism - some block all list mail.)

Messages posted to the Ada-Comment mailing list have been archived since December 1999. To find out how to search the list and retrieve messages, send a message to listserv@ada-auth.org, with a body of help ada-comment.
