Hello all,

I'd like to hear your opinion about a project that would result in an early
prototype implementation of HTTP2 (as a node.js module) by the end of the
summer. I am a student, and this is a project idea for the 2013 Google
Summer of Code, but I'd like to do some preliminary research about the
feasibility of the idea before contacting any mentoring organization with

The project would look very similar to Tatsuhiro Tsujikawa's great
sdpylay<https://github.com/tatsuhiro-t/spdylay>suite (it would include
a simple server as well as a command line client
and debugging tools besides the core library) except that it would be
written in JavaScript for node.js (that would make prototyping much easier
compared to  C or C++). The emphasis would be on easy-to-understand and
well documented code instead of performance.

I know that the current state of the standard is not suitable for
implementation yet. Do you think that it will mature fast enough to start
implementing an early prototype it in the summer?

Please share your thoughts about the idea.
