Hi all,

One of the most important aspects in the early stages of Solum 
development will be the consensus building and stabilization of the 
Solum API specification. A solid API spec aid in the speeding up the 
pace of innovation in the Solum contributor community.

One of the aspects of the Keystone development process that I think is a 
big benefit is the separate source repository that stores the OpenStack 
Identity API specifications:


When new versions of the API specification are debated or new extensions 
are proposed, patches are made to the specification markdown documents 
and reviewed in the exact same manner that regular code is on the 
https://review.openstack.org Gerrit site. Contributors are free to 
annotate the proposed changes to the API specification in the same way 
that they would make inline code comments on a regular code review. 
Here's an example for a proposed change that I recently made:


I'd like to propose that Solum do the same: have a separate source 
repository for the API specification.
