50    <p>
51      Status:
52    </p>
53    <ul>
54      <li>Published in June 2014 as <em>Proposed Standard</em> - due to the large amount of editorial changes from RFC 2616.</li>
55      <li>Of the six specs, HTTP/2 only replaces parts of one of these (wire format).</li>
56    </ul>
57    <p>
58      Goals:
59    </p>
60    <ul>
61      <li>Improve separation of wire format and all the other parts. Where needed, better accomodate HTTP/2.</li>
62      <li>Cherry-pick stuff from other specs that really should have been part of the base spec
63      (requires maturity level of "Proposed Standard"). <em>(slippery slope - we have IANA registries for a reason...)</em></li>
64    </ul>
65    <h2 class="break">RFC 7230..5: HTTP/1.1 base specs (continued)</h2>
66    <p>
67      Plan:
68    </p>
69    <ul>
70      <li>Proposed Standard &#x2192; Internet Standard.</li>
71      <li>Establish a venue where we can do more than just collecting errata. &#x2192; issue tracker, WG discussions leading
72      to proposed and agreed upon resolutions.</li>
73      <li>Start work on revised drafts after publication of HTTP/2.</li>
74    </ul>
