Tl;dr: The API Working Group, no. OpenStack *maybe*.

The API Working Group is focused on API design and consistency in
OpenStack APIs. WSGI is not something that the Working Group concerns
itself with.

OpenStack uses webob and other frameworks that are thin wrappers atop WSGI
and might be interested in it. That discussion, however, talks about
retaining easy compatibility with HTTP/1.x which is likely where OpenStack
will stay for the foreseeable future. Most of the benefits of HTTP/2 may
not be something OpenStack will care about for a while. So while OpenStack
may not be concerned with the HTTP/2 portion of WSGI 2.0 they may be
concerned with fixing bugs produced by design decisions and contributing
use-cases/feedback on proposed designs.
