Hello folks,

Please see the forwarded Working Group Last Call announcement for the
QUIC protocol drafts..

The QUIC WG will only consider feedback directed towards it so please
do not respond to this thread. Instead, review comments need to be
opened on the GitHub repo or sent to the QUIC mailing list as
described in the guidance below.

After more than three and a half years and substantial discussion, all
845 of the design issues raised against the QUIC protocol drafts have
gained consensus or have a proposed resolution. In that time the
protocol has been considerably transformed; it has become more secure,
much more widely implemented, and has been shown to be interoperable.
Both the Chairs and the Editors feel that it is ready to proceed in

Therefore, this email announces a Working Group Last Call (WGLC) for
the following QUIC documents:

* QUIC Transport

* QUIC Loss Detection and Congestion Control

* Using TLS to Secure QUIC

* Version-Independent Properties of QUIC

* HTTP/3

* QPACK Header Compression for HTTP/3

The WGLC will run for four weeks, ending on 8 July 2020.

As a reminder, we have been operating under the Late-Stage Process;
see https://github.com/quicwg/base-drafts/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md#late-stage-process.
In theory, this means that the contents of the drafts above already
have consensus. However, the Chairs would like to actively reaffirm
that consensus and start the process of wider review through a formal

Please review the documents above and open issues for your review
comments in our repository at https://github.com/quicwg/base-drafts.
You may also send comments to quic at ietf.org.

Issues raised during WGLC will be handled in accordance with the
Late-Stage Process defined in the Contribution Guidelines (see link
above). Please note that design issues that revisit a topic where
there's already declared consensus (see
need to provide compelling reasons to warrant reopening the

As part of this WGLC, we seek consensus on the remaining open design
issue #3661 “Include epoch in the AAD or the nonce?”
(https://github.com/quicwg/base-drafts/issues/3661). The proposed
resolution for this issue is to close with no action, which means that
the drafts above already reflect this emerging consensus.

Subject to the feedback received during this WGLC, a subsequent
smaller WGLC may be run in the near future to confirm any changes to
the drafts made between now and then.

The Applicability and Manageability drafts have some dependencies on
the core drafts, so we'll run separate WGLCs for them.
