> The review of "SE-0113: Add integral rounding functions to FloatingPoint" begins now and runs through July 5. The proposal is available here:
>    https://github.com/apple/swift-evolution/blob/master/proposals/0113-rounding-functions-on-floatingpoint.md
>    * What is your evaluation of the proposal?

It is an improvement but would it be even better if the return type was Int (or possibly type inferred to Int16 etc.). If a float is really desired it can be initialised from the Int (or it could even infer float result is required). 

>    * Is the problem being addressed significant enough to warrant a change to Swift?

Yes, reduces reliance on C APIs. API also clearer about semantics. 

>    * Does this proposal fit well with the feel and direction of Swift?


>    * If you have used other languages or libraries with a similar feature, how do you feel that this proposal compares to those?
>    * How much effort did you put into your review? A glance, a quick reading, or an in-depth study?

Quick read and a quick look at earlier discussion linked from proposal.
