Hello API WG,

It is nice to see such warm welcoming!

We have started using the flag in order to join the API WG initiative 
and get feedback about our current API and the guidance for future 

Current API is described at RTD [1] as a text, but structured form is 
always better for analysis.

I'll take a look at Swagger and think that it is great idea to use it.

Please consider me as a liaison from MagnetoDB project in API WG, I'm 
interested in attending meeting at 1600 UTC.

Thank you!

With best regards,
Ilya Sviridov

There are many other benefits of an API definition for documentation, testing, validation, and client creation.
