Users are welcomed to comment and discuss with developers on these changes at the indicated pages, or by adding a new issue page if no link already exists.
- Removal of (implicit) support for template polymorphism since it can be simulated using (explicit) universe polymorphism and thanks to cumulativity propagated through inductive definitions (discussion at PR #889).
New strategy based on open scopes for deciding which notation to use among several of them (discussion at PR #873) (initially planned for 8.8 but postponed).
Typical questions are: should abbreviations (i.e. notations bound to a name rather than to a
" ... "grammar rule) support being attached to a scope. What should be their priority relatively to notations defined in a scope for printing.
Factorizing "match" clauses with same right-hand side (discussion at PR #978).
Support for custom alternative grammars for terms (discussion at PR #6247).
Declare Implicit Tactic(postponed to 8.9).
