Hello WG,

We've had a few issues pop up on the HTTP/3 and QPACK specifications while
we've been waiting in the RFC editor queue. Like last time, our responsible
AD has asked us to run a consensus call to ensure that the WG is happy with
the proposed changes, before incorporating them into the documents as part
of AUTH48. This email begins a 2-week consensus call (ending *November 17
2021*, anywhere on earth). Absent any pushback, we'll work with our AD on
the next steps for incorporation.

* Disagreement in handling of unknown unidirectional stream types #4929
  - the proposed resolution is
* Clarify client behavior on receiving 421 #4934
  - the proposed resolution is to close with no action
* negative base values #4938
  - the proposed resolution is
* CONNECT might be under-specified #4939
  - the proposed resolution is

Best Regards,
Matt & Lucas
