Hi Stackers,

OK, so Matthew Gilliard and Alex Xu have volunteered to be the Nova
team's liaisons to the API working group. Big thank you to Matthew and
Alex for volunteering for this important role.

I've created a wiki page [1] that details the responsibilities of these
liaisons. If these duties work out for Nova, we'll recommend other
projects pick them up.

Here are the responsibilities that the Nova/API working group liaisons
have:

1. Monitor the active patch queue in nova (and nova-specs) and look out
for any patch that adds or changes the REST API

2. For each patch collected in #1, determine if the constructs used in
the patch (or proposed spec) match the guidance currently laid out in
the API working group repo's guidance documents.

3. If the patch does NOT match the guidance from the API working group,
do a code review on the patch pointing to the guidance from the API
working group, and ask the author to align with that guidance. Include
in your research patches to the API working group that may actually be
in review and not merged. (An example of this recently occurred with
Sergey Nikitin's re-proposed instance tagging spec:
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/177112/. See Ryan Brown's reference to
an in-progress API working group guidance on tagging)

4. If there is NO guidance in the API working group repo for a
particular proposed API change or addition, the liaison should
**either** create a proposed patch to the API working group with
guidance that clarifies the missing functionality that is introduced in
the new Nova patch or spec patch, and bring the proposed guidance to the
attention of the API working group. **or** the liaison should working
with a member of the API working group to draft such a guideline. The
liaison should mark the corresponding Nova patch with a -1 Code Review
vote with a link to the proposed guideline, noting that the patch should
be put on hold (Work In Progress) until the guideline is merged.

Best,
-jay
