Greetings OpenStack community,

This week there are no new merged guidelines nor guidelines proposed for 
freeze but there is a new guideline discussing ways to ensure that URIs 
are semantically consistent: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/322194/

# Recently merged guidelines

These guidelines have been recently merged by the group.

* Delete multiple metadata items with a single request
* Description of how to use etags to avoid lost updates

# 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
* Add guideline for Experimental APIs
* Add version discovery guideline

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.

# 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.

Thanks for reading and see you next week!
