[openstack-dev] EC2 API - users wanted

Hi all,

I wanted to remind everybody that the existing nova's EC2 API was 
deprecated in Kilo and the replacement-to-be (stackforge/ec2-api) stays 
virtually untouched by customers. It means that without real beta and 
production testing it's not going to get accepted into OpenStack. Since 
nova's EC2 API being deprecated doesn't get any good support, let alone 
development, at some point situation might become even more pitiful than 
it was before the Kilo release, when nova's EC2 API had some critical 
bugs and there was a risk to loose support of this protocol in OpenStack 

I'd like to urge everybody on the op's side to start using or testing 
the replacement EC2 API project. The Kilo-compatible release can be 
found here:


We'll be more than glad to help with any usage or testing effort and fix 
whatever issues arise ASAP.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
   Alex Levine
