What belongs in the C++ Standard Library? Should it be large and all encompassing? Or should it be small and focused? For decades, the C++ community and committee has struggled with this question.

In this talk, Bryce Adelstein Lelbach, the chair of C++'s Library Evolution group will present the history of the Standard Library's scope, from the days before the first C++ Standard, to Stepanov's STL, to Boost, the long C++0x era, the last decade of regular C++ Standard releases. He'll also present his answer to the question and the principles that he believes should guide stewardship of the C++ Standard Library.
