Hi Dimitrii,

welcome to RIOT! I think generally support for HTTP/2 is something that 
could be very interesting to RIOT. Although I think that HTTP/2 is 
probably only an option for the upper scale of devices in terms of 
memory and processing power, there might be quite some use cases where 
support might come in handy.

Implementing HTTP/2 as project during GSOC there might be one practical 
problem though. We are at the moment heavily restructuring the RIOT 
network stack. Although the first parts are almost ready, I can't quite 
tell when we will actually have a stable TCP implementation again, which 
could be a major risk to this project.

But I think it makes definitely sense to spend some more thoughts on 
this. I would recommend that you share your first thoughts on a general 
architecture as well as a rough time plan for the implementation with 
the community, so we can evaluate the feasibility of the project.

So I think this would be a great project, we just need to be very 
cautious if it is doable (especially as this depends on external 

Let us know where we can help!
