Howday all,

Just to start some conversation for the next cycle,

I wanted to start thinking about what folks may like to see in oslo (or 
yes, even what u dislike in any of the oslo libraries).

For those who don't know, oslo[1] is a lot of libraries (27+) so one of 
my complaints (and one I will try to help make better) is that most 
people probably don't know what the different 'offerings' of these 
libraries are or how to use them (docs, tutorials, docs, and more docs).

I'll pick another pet-peeve of mine as a second one to get people thinking.

2) The lack of oslo.messaging having a good security scheme (even 
something basic as a hmac or signature that can be verified, this scares 
the heck out of me what is possible over RPC) turned on by default so 
I'd like to start figuring out how to get *something* (basic == HMAC 
signature, or maybe advanced == barbican or ???)

What other thoughts do people have?

Good, bad, crazy (just keep it PG-13) thoughts are ok ;)
