308 Permanent Redirect
Greetings OpenStack community,
As with last week, today's meeting started off with continued discussion about
the Guided Review process that we are trying to create ahead of the Denver PTG.
elmiko continues to shape the proposal in a review . For the most part we're
all pretty happy with it.
We then moved on to discussing the API-WG becoming API-SIG. Continued email
discussion  has left us feeling like it's a good idea, so we voted to go for
it. There were some concerns about how this might impact repository and bug
tracking names, but we felt that we could leave those questions to be addressed
when they become problems. Over the next few weeks you may see some changes in
how things are named, but existing behaviors (making guidelines, sending this
newsletter, having a weekly IRC meeting) will remain.
On the topic of guidance, there's one new work in progress  discouraging the
use of extensions which add URLs to APIs or change the shape of
representations. As the comments there indicate, this is a tricky topic when
functionality is impacted either by policy or by the presence of different
drivers. We haven't fully decided how we're going to explain these issues, but
we do want to make sure that it is well known that if you are trying to create
an interoperable API, optional URIs are a bad idea.
