This document describes a scheme that allows an HTTP client to
communicate its preferences for how the upstream server prioritizes
responses to its requests, and also allows a server to hint to a
downstream intermediary how its responses should be prioritized when
they are forwarded.  This document defines the Priority header field
for communicating the initial priority in an HTTP version-independent
manner, as well as HTTP/2 and HTTP/3 frames for reprioritizing
responses. These share a common format structure that is designed to
provide future extensibility.

This document is a product of the HTTP Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
