Given that the EC2 functionality is currently in use by at least 1/6th of production clouds (https://www.openstack.org/assets/survey/Public-User-Survey-Report.pdf page 34), this is a worrying situation.

The EC2 functionality was recently deprecated from Nova on the grounds that the EC2 API project was the correct way to proceed. With the proposal now to not have an EC2 API project at all, this will leave many in the community confused.
