Greetings OpenStack community,

Today's meeting [0] was a relatively quiet one; I attribute it to cdent's absence. :)

Most of the meeting was concerned with reviews of existing issues, and those didn't generate much discussion. There was some discussion of cdent's response to the OpenStack Technical Committee's discussion on "Updating stability/compatibility guidelines". Chris created a patch "[WIP] Refactor and re-validate api change guidelines" at https://review.openstack.org/#/c/421846, and posted an email describing his take on the issue: http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-dev/2017-January/110384.html. All are encouraged to comment on the review. In Chris's words: "I wanted to be sure that the guideline got a rewrite to express that goal zero is to make users happy and that trumps everything"

Lots of other guidelines in progress and awaiting your feedback if you have time to give it (see below).

# Newly Published Guidelines

* Accurate status code vs. Backwards compatibility

* fix no sample file in browser

# API Guidelines Proposed for Freeze

Guidelines that are ready for wider review by the whole community.

* Add guidelines on usage of state vs. status

* Clarify the status values in versions

* Add guideline for invalid query parameters

# Guidelines Currently Under Review [3]

* Add guidelines for boolean names

* Define pagination guidelines

* Add API capabilities discovery guideline

# Highlighting your API impacting issues

If you seek further review and insight from the API WG, please address your concerns in an email to the OpenStack developer mailing list[1] with the tag "[api]" in the subject. In your email, you should include any relevant reviews, links, and comments to help guide the discussion of the specific challenge you are facing.
