Hi All,

I need to air a concern over the create openstack/service-registry [1] patch which aims to create an OpenStack service type registry project to act as a dedicated registry location for service types in OpenStack under the auspices of the API Working Group.

My concern is that it gets the API Working Group partially into the big tent governance game. Personally I have zero interest in big tent governance. I want better APIs, not to become embroiled in governance. That said, I do fully recognize that by their nature APIs in general (not just OpenStack) play a large role in governance.

The purpose of this email is not to dissuade the API WG from taking on this responsibility. In fact, now that we've got a lot of experience authoring guidelines and shepherding them through the guideline process, it's time the WG evolved. My purpose is to simply make sure we go into this with eyes wide open and understand the consequences of doing so.
