Greetings OpenStack community,
This week's meeting was mainly focused on discussion of plans for the
PTG and about improving the outreach efforts of the SIG.
The API-SIG will have a room on Monday and Tuesday at the PTG. In
addition to the guided review process  we've mentioned before,
there's an etherpad  where an agenda of topics is being planned. We
will be sharing some of the time with people interested in SDKs and
other issues related to consuming APIs. If there are gaps we will be
performing live readings of mordred's version and service discovery epic
.These readings may or may not involve hand puppets. If you would
like to propose a topic for the PTG, please add it to the aforementioned
In addition to our discussion of events for the PTG, we also talked
about how we can improve our outreach and messaging to the wider
OpenStack community. This was predicated by a review of our email
advertising the guided review process. Although we have talked about
this topic and taken steps to advance the SIG in the past, a fresh take
on this discussion revolved around the notion of reaching project teams
earlier in their API design process. Starting after the PTG, the API-SIG
will investigate reaching out to projects which are still incubating
with the hope that interacting with these teams early in their lifecycle
will be of maximum benefit.
