Hello Swift Community,

The second review of SE-0089: "Renaming String.init<T>(_: T)" ran from June 4...7. The proposal is *accepted* for Swift 3.  

The feedback from the community on this second round was light, which indicates that the extensive iteration on earlier rounds brought this to a good place.  The core team discussed other possibilities for the parameter label (e.g. from: instead of describing:) but ended up agreeing that a more explicit “describing:” label is the best fit for this API.

Many thanks to Austin Zheng and Brent Royal-Gordon for driving this discussion, iterating on the design, and writing a great proposal!  I filed SR-1881 to track implementation of this work.  This would be a great project for someone who wants to work on the standard library.
