Technical Summary

   This document describes the mechanisms for allowing a JavaScript
   application to control the signaling plane of a multimedia session
   via the interface specified in the W3C RTCPeerConnection API and
   discusses how this relates to existing signaling protocols.

   This specification obsoletes RFC 8829.

Working Group Summary

   The RTCWEB was reconstituted just to produce this update document,
   which it has now done.  The process appears to have been smooth; no
   particular issues to raise to the IESG.

Document Quality

   The document describes a clarification to the original WebRTC
   documents, specifically the resolution of a conflict between two
   of them.  (See the current WebRTC charter for details.).  There are
   already implementations of the original specifications.


   Sean Turner is the Document Shepherd for this document.
   Murray Kucherawy is the responsible Area Director.
