     1= Call for Expressions of Interest =
     2
     3The [http://trac.tools.ietf.org/wg/httpbis/trac/wiki IETF HTTPbis Working Group] has been [http://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/httpbis/charter/ chartered] to consider new work around HTTP; specifically, a new wire-level protocol for the semantics of HTTP (i.e., what will become HTTP/2.0), and new HTTP authentication schemes.
     4
     5A number of proposals for each area of work has been made. To gauge interest in these protocols, the Working Group is calling for expressions of interest by potential implementers and deployers.
     6
     7In particular, we're interested in feedback from:
     8 * Web browser, server, and proxy vendors
     9 * Authors of libraries that implement HTTP in various programming languages
     10 * Firewall vendors that work with HTTP
     11 * Creators of other software or hardware components that need to communicate using HTTP
     12 * Network operators who deal with HTTP traffic
     13 * Operators of Web sites
     14 * Operators of Content Delivery Networks
     15 * Operators of Web crawlers and robots
     16
     17Our aim is to select one of the HTTP/2.0 proposals and at least one of the authentication proposals for further work and eventual standardisation. Implementer and deployer feedback will be one factor considered in determining this starting point; however, it will not solely guide the decision.

     19= Sending Feedback =
     20
     21Feedback must use the form below, and should be sent to the Working Group mailing list, [mailto:ietf-http-wg@w3.org ietf-http-wg@w3.org]. Exceptionally, implementers and deployers who are not subscribed to the list may send their feedback to [mailto:mnot@mnot.net the WG Chair], who will forward it to the list.
     22
     23When sending feedback, please use the Subject "HTTP2 Expression of Interest", and briefly describe your implementation or deployment before giving your feedback on the individual proposals.
     24
     25For each proposal, your answer should follow one of these forms:
     26
     27* I have already [ implemented / deployed ] this proposal, and would / would not recommend its use, because [ list reasons ]
     28* I have already [ implemented / deployed ] this proposal, and would not recommend its use, because [ list reasons ]
     29* I would [ implement / deploy ] this proposal because [ list reasons ]
     30* I would not [ implement / deploy ] this proposal because [ list reasons ]
