[swift-evolution] Which functionality should be covered by a native Swift math/numerics library that ships with the standard lib?

I think this is a great idea!

As Chris said we should use GitHub or something else to start such a project. Does someone already has a Math library where we can discuss and commit?

I'll soon push a small Math library to my GitHub repo and let you know.

Best regards
