Description

Hello,

as Googles QUIC becomes more stable and discussed around the web, it should be mandatory for nginx.org and/or nginx.com to establish an statement about future development whether QUIC may be considered or not. And if so, what is the long term plan: 2016, 2017 or later.

Thank you.

FWIW I'd be very interested in looking at QUIC support, especially as from what I hear from IETF land, it's likely to effectively be HTTP/2.5 or HTTP/3

tcp/443 : 1.4GB , 7M pkts
udp/443 : 357MB , 3101k pkts
tcp/80 : 159MB , 2591k pkts
tcp/8080 : 146MB , 315k pkts

Download
tcp/443 : 11.5GB , 9M pkts
udp/443 : 7.0GB , 5M pkts
tcp/80 : 5.5GB , 4091k pkts

HTTP/3 has been announced as HTTP over QUIC by the IETF: https://daniel.haxx.se/blog/2018/11/11/http-3/

I hope this is an additional argument for QUIC support in nginx.

Can someone on Nginx please take a look at supporting QUIC already?
