Greetings OpenStack community,
Happy new year to all and welcome to the first API-SIG meeting of 2018.
As the SIG is ramping back up after the holiday break we had a few
topics to kick off the new year and get the ball rolling.
The SIG is working to complete our year in review report that will be
collected and distributed by the OpenStack foundation. Without spoiling
the report, 2017 was a year of steady progress for the SIG with several
efforts aimed at improving interoperability and expanding the
inclusiveness of the group.
Graham Hayes(mugsie) shared his in-progress work towards
generating machine readable output for API schemas. This is a topic that
the SIG has studied in the past and that continues to generate interest
from the community. At the core of this issue is the idea that if a
project can provide API schemas in a common format with their
documentation then the job of SDK implementors and other integrators
will be greatly eased. If you have thoughts or opinions on this topic,
please review mugsie's proposals and add your input.
Monty Taylor(mordred) has been investigating how pagination is
implemented across the OpenStack ecosystem. It appears that there are
several differing implementations that exist and this is causing some
friction in the SDK development process. Although there is already a
guideline about pagination, the SIG is examining how best they can help
projects move towards consistency in this area and will continue to
discuss solutions in the next meeting.
