Comments Submitted After LC Was Published
- LC-1; 17-May-2012 by Jason Duell <firstname.lastname@example.org>; "Proposal: add websocket close codes for "server not found" and/or "too many websockets open". The 28-May-2012 reply by Takeshi Yoshino notes this is a Chrome bug and not a spec bug. The 1-June-2012 reply by Simon Pieters indicates the Protocol spec needs to be updated. No spec change required.
- LC-2; 24-May-2012 by Julian Reschke < email@example.com>. This comment was already captured in Bug 12510. The DRAFT CR includes a fix for this bug and this fix (created by Julian) is considered non-substantive because it includes links to terms and definitions in the HTML5 spec.
