The Web Architecture Lab is a work area for specifying and experimenting with the interrelated shared agreements (protocols) that make the World Wide Web a happy place. The goal is to produce a central storage for Web protocol evolution, including both existing Web protocols and new ones, that Apache developers can refer to, comment on, prototype alternatives, and provide examples and test cases. A secondary goal is to experiment with tools for integrating public commentary with the specification process.
Is WAKA still vaporspec? Totally. Does it still have to overcome the inertia of HTTP by proving at least an order of magnitude improvement (which HTTPNG and others failed to do)? Yes. Still, Roy has a pretty good track record, and Iâ€™d put my money on him (especially when backed
up by the ASF) over a bunch of vendors trying to sell â€œplatformâ€ any day.
