FWIW...me/us too.   For context:  we have remote service providers that
depend upon HttpService, and it would be very nice for those and other
providers to use the R6 HttpService updates as soon as possible.

We also have a pending contribution of a remote service provider that's
based upon/uses websockets [1] and would like to make that contribution
available to our consumers in Luna timeframe.

Perhaps this could be done by multiple committers collaborating
cross-project rather than (e.g.) one equinox committer.   Perhaps also the
corporate members (others of which would probably also like to see
this...is my guess) could contribute support to such cross-project
collaboration.

I don't know either.  Unfortunately I cannot commit to drive it
myself...I've got enough on my own plate already.  Although I can/would be
willing to contribute/collaborate.

Is that true?   I was under the impression that the rfc-189 work would be
in R6.

Sure.  Is this something that can/should be discussed at the
RT-PMC...and/or at upcoming EclipseCon?  Seems to me likely that many (at
least) runtime projects likely use HttpService...and so I suspect you and
I are not alone in wanting to see it happen.
