Hi,

Is this event restricted to the main actors and contributors or are 
simple web developers welcome to discuss the matter too ?

We’re hoping that meeting can take place on the 10th of September in Paris at the Mozilla offices (just before the CSS WG meeting, which starts on the 11th). So far we have confirmations from Apple, Adobe, Google, and Opera.

Although we now have three proposals on the table (srcset [1], <picture> [2] and client hints [3]), we've had trouble getting sufficient momentum behind browser implementations that would let the market decide which solutions fulfills the use cases most effectively.

This directly hinders the performance work browser engineers have done over the years to optimize resource loading, and get requests on the wire as soon as possible, according to their priority. This leaves developers either giving up all the benefits of preloading or downloading unnecessary data, slowing down the overall load time and inflating bandwidth costs.
