> @CuriousLearner, does the PR also include Nick's first suggested change? Here:
Bitwise operations only make sense for integers. The result of bitwise operations is calculated as though carried out in two's complement with an infinite number of sign bits.
I think it was then discussed to keep this line as:
Bitwise operations only make sense for integers. Negative numbers are treated as their 2's complement value.
Does this needs to be changed?
