As you mention, searchlight consumes notifications from nova and other services. We've been moving towards versioned notifications over the last couple of cycles. Our use case is maybe unusual that we'd prefer notifications to represent the current state of a resource (with a timestamp) though I can think of others where the delta is more important. We've been working with you towards having the payloads have more in common with what you'd get from nova api responses since part of what we're trying to do is act as a fast cache.

Also the nova developer community is working on making nova notifications well defined and easy to consume . The goal of this mail is twofold. 1) We in the nova developer community would like to see which projects are using (or planning to use) the nova notification interface. Also we would like to know if you are using the legacy unversioned notifications or the new versioned ones. We would like to know what are your use cases towards our notification interface and we also would like to get any type of feedback about the interface (both the old and the new one). Based on this information we can make better decision where to focus our development effort. As a good example we already have a cooperation with the searchlight project to enhance nova's versioned notification interface based on their needs . I opened an etherpad  to collect the projects and the feedback and we can go through that feedback in the PTG to define some actions. 2) Creating a well defined and easy to use notification interface gives us plenty of work in nova. So we are also looking for developers who can help us in this work. Big chunk of  is considered as low hanging fruit and I'm happy to mentor anybody who is interested learning this part of nova. If you want to join to this work just ping me (gibi) or IRC.
