0.2 Escalation policy

This coding standard aims to enforce current best practice in C++ development by applying semantic and stylistic recommendations, including controlling the use of language features of C++ which can lead to misunderstanding or errors. In each case a justification is presented as to why the restriction is being applied. However, in view of the fact that research into usage of languages in general and C++ in particular is ongoing, this coding standard will be reviewed and updated from time to time to reflect current best practice in developing reliable C++ code.
