Hello all,

This summer i will be working on implementing basic HTTP/2 support as part
of Google Summer of Code! I am really excited to be working with you all
and looking forward to coding the summer away :-).

As you may already be thinking, this is no easy task! That's why the main
objective is to get a single file download working with SSL and go on from
there. This will set the bases for further development and explore the
changes required in wget. All details are laid out in my proposal [0].

The implementation of the protocol itself will come from nghttp [1], a C
HTTP/2 library. To handle networking I/O, libevent [2] will be used as
described in this sample client [3]. However I am not fully committed to
this and will try to reuse wget's code as much as possible.

I will come up with more implementation details as I read more about the
protocol and the libraries in the coming weeks, will keep you posted.
Please let me know if you have any concerns/suggestions, they are more than
