            Bug ID: 19631
           Summary: explicit specialization outside of template's
                    namespace inaccuretly accepted
           Product: clang
           Version: 3.4
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: C++

namespace N {
  struct A { };

struct N::A<int> { };

int main () { }


According to `[temp.expl.spec]p2` the above snippet should be rejected, but
`clang` accepts it without any diagnostic (version >3.3).


  > An explicit specialization shall be declared in a namespace

  > specialization may be defined later (


[ note: I tried the snippet with version 3.3 of `clang`, and we get a warning
saying that the above is accepted due to `-Wc++11-extensions` (which is
misleading), in later versions of clang no such diagnostic is issued. ]

[ note: `gcc` rejects it, as one should ]
