Greetings OpenStack community,

Today's open discussion centered around the concept of capabilities and 
the need to ensure that however we end up doing them in APIs there 
should be consistency amongst the existing OpenStack services. In fact, 
it would be great if there were consistency between how OpenStack 
chooses to do it and how it is done on the rest of the web. More 
research required.

Brian Rosmaita visited to discuss similar issues around discovery of 
detailed functionality in the glance import API[6]. It's unclear if 
these details are the same as capabilities. What's clear is that we'll 
need to be tracking this carefully to avoid creating confusion.

The meeting logs are in the usual place. [5]

# New guidelines

* A guideline for links

# 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.

* Add the beginning of a set of guidlines for URIs
* Clarify backslash usage for 'in' operator

# 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.

* Clear the case if the version string isn't parsable

# 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!
