On Query Objects

Query objects are not container objects (section 2.6.12 does not specify them as container objects, while other objects in 2.6 are explicitly mentioned to be container objects), but they also aren't *sharable* objects either. So it's wrong to move them to that section (which is why I rejected your edit), but there does need to be a notation that they cannot be shared. Alfonse (talk) 02:27, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

No problem. The wording used in the fourth paragraph of Chapter 5 _does_ include queries among container objects (see the latest spec), hence my confusion. I must admit that I was actually quite surprised to see them among containers. Maybe that could be fixed in the next revision of the document but I don't know who to contact for this. --Pclement (talk) 14:20, 25 September 2019 (UTC)
That's a good point, but it contradicts 2.6.12 (as well as its own definition, since query objects don't store references to objects). As such, I've filed an OpenGL spec bug asking for clarification on this point. Alfonse (talk) 15:22, 25 September 2019 (UTC)
