Greetings OpenStack community,

A good meeting this week [5], with the discussion centered mostly on a spec for an API-schema guide [8]. The spec itself isn't quite fleshed out enough, so it wasn't entirely clear what problem this would be adressing. The spec's author, Gilles, will add additional information to the spec and we will re-review.

That brought up another issue: the current meeting time for the API-SIG is 1600UTC, which is not very convenient for APAC contributors. Gilles is in Australia, and so it was the middle of the night for him! As one of the goals for the API-SIG is to expand our audience and membership, edleafe committed to seeing if there is an available meeting slot at 2200UTC, which would be convenient for APAC, and still early enough for US people to attend. If an APAC-friendly meeting time would be good for you, please keep an eye out on the mailing list for an announcement if we are able to set that up, and then please attend and participate!

* The list of bugs [6] indicates several missing or incomplete guidelines.
* The existing guidelines [2] always need refreshing to account for changes over time. If you find something that's not quite right, submit a patch [7] to fix it.
* Have you done something for which you think guidance would have made things easier but couldn't find any? Submit a patch and help others [7].
