Hi all,
after 6 months of Glare v1 API development we have decided to continue our
work in a separate project in the "openstack" namespace with its own core
team (me, Kairat Kushaev, Darja Shkhray and the original creator -
Alexander Tivelkov). We want to thank Glance community for their support
during the incubation period, valuable advice and suggestions - this time
was really productive for us. I believe that this step will allow the Glare
project to concentrate on feature development and move forward faster.
Having the independent service also removes inconsistencies in
understanding what Glance project is: it seems that a single project cannot
own two different APIs with partially overlapping functionality. So with
the separation of Glare into a new project, Glance may continue its work on
the OpenStack Images API, while Glare will become the reference
implementation of the new OpenStack Artifacts API.

Nevertheless, Glare team would like to continue to collaborate with the
Glance team in a new - cross-project - format. We still have lots in
common, both in code and usage scenarios, so we are looking forward for
fruitful work with the rest of the Glance team. Those of you guys who are
interested in Glare and the future of Artifacts API are also welcome to
join the Glare team: we have a lot of really exciting tasks and will always
welcome new members.
Meanwhile, despite the fact that my focus will be on the new project, I
will continue to be part of the Glance team and for sure I'm going to
contribute in Glance, because I am interested in this project and want to
help it be successful.

We'll have the formal patches pushed to project-config earlier next week,
appropriate repositories, wiki and launchpad space will be created soon as
well.  Our regular weekly IRC meeting remains intact: it is 17:30 UTC
Mondays in #openstack-meeting-alt, it will just become a Glare project
meeting instead of a Glare sub-team meeting. Please feel free to join!

Best regards,
Mikhail Fedosin

P.S. For those of you who may be curious on the project name. We'll still
be called "Glare", but since we are on our own now this acronym becomes
recursive: GLARE now stands for "GLare Artifact REpository" :)
