Greetings OpenStack community,

No new guidelines this week but we did have a very productive time creating launchpad bugs for all the TODOs that are in the existing guidelines. The idea is that using launchpad will help to keep the TODOs visible and encourage action. See them at https://bugs.launchpad.net/openstack-api-wg/+bugs?field.tag=todo

And, of course, if you think there are bugs in the guidelines, report them.

We also decided that the great big "THIS A DRAFT" warning at the start of the guidelines [1] suggests that the guidelines are not ready. They are ready but they are also live documents that evolve. A review is in place to remove the warning [2].

# Recently merged guidelines

Nothing new in the last two weeks.

# 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. 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 [3] 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 [4] to promote communication surrounding their reviews.

Thanks for reading and see you next week!
