Shepherd writeup

# Shepherd Writeup for draft-ietf-httpbis-h3-websockets

## 1. Summary

Mark Nottingham is the document shepherd; Francesca Palombini is the
responsible Area Director.

The mechanism for running the WebSocket Protocol over a single stream of an
HTTP/2 connection is equally applicable to HTTP/3, but the HTTP
version-specific details need to be specified. This document describes how the
mechanism is adapted for HTTP/3.

This document is being requested for publication as a Proposed Standard.

## 2. Review and Consensus

Because it is both small and extending already established functionality from
HTTP/2 to HTTP/3, this document has enjoyed brief but thorough review by the
HTTP WG. Its progress has been uncontroversial, and considered an obvious but
necessary step by all that have weighed in.

## 3. Intellectual Property

The author has confirmed that they have stated that their direct, personal
knowledge of any IPR related to this document has already been disclosed, in
conformance with BCPs 78 and 79.

## 4. Other Points

There are no downrefs in this document, and the IANA Considerations appear to
be correct.

The acknowledgements section is empty and can be removed in a subsequent draft,
or by the RFC Editor.
