Hi @all,

I'm writing a new I-D to standardize `RateLimit-*` headers.
I had some positive feedback from Erik Wilde, so I'm posting here :)

The document defines the RateLimit-Limit, RateLimit-Remaining,
RateLimit-Reset header fields for HTTP, thus allowing servers to
publish current request quotas and clients to shape their request
policy avoiding being throttled out.

The draft is here:

If you are interested, feel free to comment PRs and file issues!
If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask :)

Thanks and have a nice day,
R
