Subject Re: drop experimental from http2 for 2.4.next?
Date Wed, 17 May 2017 09:34:42 GMT
I was talking about the way ahead for HTTP/2 support in httpd.

Regarding it as no longer "experimental" helps, I hope, to make
better progress on this. There have been two aspects to "experimental"
in my mind:

 1. The "we do not guarantee that this is how it will stay". Anything
    may change in the next release to make it better and better.
 2. We try this out. It's an experiment. It may go away again.

Removing "experimental" makes it clear to everyone that the project
has been working on 1 and that http2 has become a core part of
httpd, similar to ssl. And as more than one person is working on
ssl, I hope that we will have more people working on http2.
