Instead of discussing toolchain versions and whether C++14 or 17 is best, let’s just focus on one baby step: agreeing on a policy. This policy will be used to update our toolchain, hopefully warning people in LLVM 8 and actually moving past C++11 for LLVM 9.

It’s definitely in scope of the developer policy, but out of scope for my proposal. Good follow-up discussion to have.
