Greetings OpenStack community,

This week, the API-WG was visited by Deepti Ramakrishna from the Cinder 
project. Deepti brought up a spec currently being implemented by the 
Cinder team about resource capabilities, "New public core APIs to expose 
system capabilities"[5][6]. The result of this was a great discussion[7] 
about the possibility of creating a new guideline for projects that may 
wish to expose capability specific information in their REST API servers.

I'd like to thank Deepti for bringing this up, and I encourage anyone 
who is interested to have a look at the Cinder spec and hopefully share 
their input about how this might be used by other projects in the 
OpenStack ecosystem.

No new guidelines have been merged or proposed for freeze this week.

# Recently merged guidelines


# API guidelines proposed for freeze

The following guidelines are available for broader review by interested 
parties. These will be merged in one week if there is no further feedback.

None this week

# Guidelines currently under review

These are guidelines that the working group are debating and working on 
for consistency and language. We encourage any interested parties to 
join in the conversation.

* Add the beginning of a set of guidlines for URIs
* Add description of pagination parameters

Note that some of these guidelines were introduced quite a long time ago 
and need to either be refreshed by their original authors, or adopted by 
new interested parties. If you're the author of one of these older 
reviews, please come back to it or we'll have to mark it abandoned.

# API Impact reviews currently open

Reviews marked as APIImpact [1] are meant to help inform the working 
group about changes which would benefit from wider inspection by group 
members and liaisons. While the working group will attempt to address 
these reviews whenever possible, it is highly recommended that 
interested parties attend the API-WG meetings [2] to promote 
communication surrounding their reviews.

To learn more about the API WG mission and the work we do, see OpenStack 
API Working Group [3].

Thanks for reading and see you next week!
