Below are the API related features for Rocky cycle. Nova API Sub team will start reviewing those to give their regular feedback. If anythings missing there feel free to add those in etherpad- https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/rocky-nova-priorities-tracking 

1. Servers Ips non-unique network names :

- Spec Merged
- https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:bp/servers-ips-non-unique-network-names+(status:open+OR+status:merged) 
- Weekly Progress: Spec is merged. I am in contact with author about code update (sent email last night). If no response till this week, i will push the code update for this BP.  

2. Abort live migration in queued state: 
- https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/abort-live-migration-in-queued-status 
- https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:bp/abort-live-migration-in-queued-status+(status:open+OR+status:merged) 
- Weekly Progress: Review is going and it is in nova runway this week. In API office hour, we discussed about doing the compute service version checks on compute.api.py side than on rpc side. Dan has point of doing it on rpc side where migration status can changed to running. We decided to further discussed it on patch. 

3. Complex anti-affinity policies: 
- https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/complex-anti-affinity-policies 
- https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:bp/complex-anti-affinity-policies+(status:open+OR+status:merged) 
- Weekly Progress: Good review progress. In API office hour, we discussed on 2 points-
       1. whether request also need to have flat format like response. IMO we need to have flat in both request and response. Yikun need more opinion on that. 

       2. naming fields to policy_* as we are moving these new fields in flat format. I like to have policy_* for clear understanding of attributes by their name. This is not concluded 
             and alex will give feedback on patch.
       Discussion is on patch for consensus on naming things.
