Technically, the March 1 interop will be continuing for a few hours, but
I would like to list here the bugs that were found in a variety of

1) Whose bright idea was it to write that Padding should be
acknowledged? Some developers think that this is silly. If you want an
acknowledgement, send a Ping. Or, if we really need to ack the Pad, then
kill the Ping.

2) Stateless Reset changes the initial CNX-ID? If you look at the list
of stuff changed "since draft-ietf-quic-transport-08", that's a
surprise. Not hard to fix, but as one developer puts it, "I just run
diff2 at this point". Otherwise, you have to trust the editors to
actually write changes in the what changed section...

3) Really, I cannot send ACKs of 0RTT packets in the handshake packets?
Oh, and no 1RTT either? It seems very natural if you have received CI
and 0Rtt to send a single ACK. And if the server sends 1Rtt packet just
after the TLS first flight, it seems natural to send an ACK for both
with the Finished message.

4) Define immediately, as in "I can resume a connection immediately
after closing the previous one". What about, "my server side of the
previous connection is not closed yet"... and I can only have one
connection in progress for a given client IP and Port.

5) And there is some joy in the interaction with various TLS stacks
regarding Stateless Reset, and its interaction with Session Resume.
Probably because TLS 1.3 is new.

Given all that, the matrix at
looks quite good!
