Client Hints infrastructure


Hello all,

I’d like to move the processing related to Client Hints infrastructure from the various PRs 1 2 in which it was scattered into a single incubated document under the WICG org.

The infrastructure have seen support from various industry members (e.g. Cloudinary has been a notable proponent), but lack of commitment from other vendors means that there’s no reasonable timeline for landing the related PRs. That makes me think that a separate document outlining the infrastructure would reduce confusion and enable collaborative incubation.


Seems like moving to a unified/separate document will make things much easier to review (which has been a problem) and will make a dedicated space for issues and PRs.

Cloudinary supports this move and is hopeful that it can make space to move Client Hints on the web forward.


The repo now lives under https://github.com/WICG/client-hints-infrastructure
