std::vector insert type requirements

Hello everyone, I hope this mailing list is the right place to ask about
this. When I try to compile this particular code
sample I get an error, that A must have a
copy assignment operator. However when reading the documentation
at I do not
see any such requirements for this particular overload of insert. It
does mention that T must be moveAssignable and MoveInsertable if
Iterator is not ForwardIterator. Even if I define move assignment
operator it still requires copy assignment.

I have tested it on Clang 4, Clang 6, GCC 8.1 and get the same error.
MSVC 2017 compiles when move assignment is present. It would be great if
someone could explain this behavior.

please look at:

I am afraid this is not what I am trying to achieve. I want to copy vector contents via insert, but why it requires copy assignment to be defined in order to compile? Simple construction from the pair of iterators works without it.

If you construct with copy, the copy constructor is used.
The insert operation works (I think) by copying new items over the old items, not by constructing new items, so the copy assignment is needed (if not the move iterator is used).
