Ballot Text

Technical Summary

   This document specifies QUIC version 2, which is identical to QUIC
   version 1 except for some trivial details.  Its purpose is to combat
   various ossification vectors and exercise the version negotiation
   framework.  It also serves as a template for the minimum changes in
   any future version of QUIC.

   Note that "version 2" is an informal name for this proposal that
   indicates it is the second standards-track QUIC version.  The
   protocol specified here uses a version number other than 2 in the
   wire image.

Working Group Summary

   Broad agreement. This document was widely discussed on github, the mailing
list, and at multiple IETF meetings. Given the nature of the work (versions) and the relationship with version
negotiation, there were some philosophical questions that had to be ironed out,
but ultimately the consensus was not unusually rough.

Document Quality

   There are multiple interoperating implementations which have been reported and
tested through the typical form of social testing on the QUIC dev slack
workspace. This includes major implementers who intend to use it in production.
