Message-ID: <CAA2gsfq1+yvFS=DsCqy+f4yABxhYmbYBLheajvf60N+A2o1U6A@mail.gmail.com>
To: public-webapps@w3.org, Arthur Barstow <art.barstow@nokia.com>, Charles McCathieNevile <chaals@opera.com>
As further input on this proposed discussion, please see the
unofficial draft of the "EventSource API Connectionless Push
Extension" at http://bkaj.net/w3c/eventsource-push.html.

Hopefully webapps will have at least 30 minutes open in the schedule
for Tuesday so I can introduce this API draft proposal, and we can
discuss the other alternatives noted below.

Comments are welcome.
