Technical Summary

   The mechanism for running the WebSocket Protocol over a single stream of an HTTP/2 connection is equally applicable to HTTP/3, but the HTTP version-specific details need to be specified. This document describes how the mechanism is adapted for HTTP/3.

Working Group Summary and Document Quality

   Because it is both small and extending already established functionality from HTTP/2 to HTTP/3, this document has enjoyed brief but thorough review by the HTTP WG. Its progress has been uncontroversial, and considered an obvious but necessary step by all that have weighed in.


   Mark Nottingham is the document shepherd; Francesca Palombini is the responsible Area Director.
