           Summary: -Wshadow on nested static data members
           Product: new-bugs
           Version: trunk
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: MacOS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: new bugs
        AssignedTo: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: Axel.Naumann at cern.ch

struct A {
   static void* f; void* g;
   struct B { static void* f; void* g; };

compiled with
clang++ -c -Wall -Wshadow -O2 t.cxx
generates the warning

t.cxx:3:28: warning: declaration shadows a static data member of 'A'
   struct B { static void* f; void* g; };
t.cxx:2:17: note: previous declaration is here
   static void* f; void* g;

Comment from Doug:

> only complain when a local declaration shadows something from the outer scope.

Could this get fixed, please?

Cheers, Axel.
