We are still working on the Charter Proposal and on the Agenda so all the proposal and comments are welcome!
The purpose of this BoF and eventual WG is to work on "HTTP bidirectional" communication and both its improvement and evolution in new a protocol(s)
Here are the topics we are thinking to include in the charter proposal:
* Characterize and describe the design space for long-poll applications * list the Requirements for new browser protocol * New browser protocol. WebSockets as a possible starting point. * at the same time, while waiting for new eventual protocol to be deployed, we envision the need to continue to improve the long-poll approach: o a suggested long-poll approach o how to improve or optimize middle-box (e.g. proxy) interoperability o Protocol bindings into the long-poll approach
