Greetings OpenStack community,

Today's meeting was brief, primarily focused on planning for the
summit sessions[7][8] that the SIG will host and facilitate.

The first session[7], will be a Birds of a Feather (BoF) gathering
where the topics will be determined by the attendees. One topic that
will surely make that list is the GraphQL proof of concept for Neutron
that has been discussed on the mailing list[9].

The second session[8], will be a directed discussion addressing
technical debt in the REST APIs of OpenStack.  We're now at the point
where people would like to start removing old code. This session will
give interested parties details about how they can leverage
microversions and the guidelines of the SIG to reduce their debt, drop
old functionality, and improve the consistency of their APIs. It will
also clarify what it means when we bump the minimum microversion for a
service in the future and discuss plans for creating an OpenStack
community goal.

For both sessions, the SIG has aligned itself towards helping
coordinate discussions, clear up misunderstandings, and generally be
helpful in ensuring that all voices are heard and cross-cutting
concerns are addressed. If you are heading to summit, we hope to see
you there!

There being no recent changes to pending guidelines nor to bugs, we
ended the meeting early.

As always if you're interested in helping out, in addition to coming
to the meetings, there's also:

* The list of bugs [5] 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 [6] 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

# Newly Published Guidelines


# API Guidelines Proposed for Freeze

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


# Guidelines Currently Under Review [3]

* Update parameter names in microversion sdk spec

* Add API-schema guide (still being defined)

* A (shrinking) suite of several documents about doing version and
service discovery
  Start at https://review.openstack.org/#/c/459405/

* WIP: microversion architecture archival doc (very early; not yet
ready for review)

# Highlighting your API impacting issues

If you seek further review and insight from the API SIG about APIs
that you are developing or changing, 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.

To learn more about the API SIG mission and the work we do, see our
wiki page [4] and guidelines [2].

Thanks for reading and see you next week!
